Sparks of enthusiasm at Great Houghton School

Jane Lancaster-Adlam (daughter of the Rev Lancaster, founder of Kimbolton Fireworks) has teamed up with Craig Gibbs to breathe new life into this well established Northamptonshire school where the inquisitive enthusiasm of its pupils was rewarded with a visit to their uniform manufacturer. The Year 9 Young Enterprise Class had a tour of the factory and saw their school blazers passing down the machine line. They also experienced some of the skill required to cut their stripe cloth so that the stripes on the pockets line up with the stripes on the jacket.

One of the pupils commented; “Thank you Sir. I want to run a business in the future and today I have been given an idea of what it involves”
