Baroness Warsi Visits Local Academy School

Local Filton and Bradley Stoke MP Jack Lopresti has visited the Winterbourne International Academy, with Conservative Party Co-Chairman Baroness Warsi, to discuss the Academy's plans for the future following the announcement, at the end of last year, that the Coalition Government had granted the academy funding to secure its long term future.

On 20th December, following the ongoing review of schools capital funding, Lord Hill, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Schools, announced £19.3m of capital investment for Winterbourne International Academy.

The Academy is now in discussions with the Property Services arm of South Gloucestershire Council to draw up a detailed scheme.

Jack said: "I am very grateful that Baroness Warsi took time out of her incredibly busy schedule to come and visit the Winterbourne International Academy to see, at first hand, the great work that they do.  The significant capital investment at Winterbourne International Academy is excellent news for the Academy and the wider local community."
