The Right Honourable Sajid Javid MP (Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport)  visited the College at noon on Wednesday 17 September 2014 to cut the ribbon at the new reception area at the College.

Phase 2 of the College was completed this year, and the Secretary of State arrived to be welcomed by the whole college, plus pupils from Chulmleigh Primary School.

After greeting the students, and promising not to keep them from their lunch for too long, he cut the ribbon to a roll of African drums, courtesy of the college's student drummers. 

During his tour of the building, he was expertly interviewed by the college's budding journalists, Flora and Lilly, and expressed his hope that the college is successful in receiving the funds needed for phase 3, the last step in completing our ambitious building programme.
