Visit by Dr Dan Poulter MP

We were delighted to welcome our MP to school last Friday. Dr Poulter help plan a special elm tree that is part of the Great British Elm Experiment. This research project hopes to re-populate the country with elm trees to replace some of the 20 million that were lost to Dutch Elm Disease, using saplings propagated from those that showed resistance to the disease. The school will be monitoring the tree for the next twenty years or so!
