Former Prime Minister and Huntingdon MP Sir John Major paid a visit Kimbolton School on May 9 to host a talk with politics students, their parents, and staff.

Sir John Major, who was Prime Minister and leader of the Conservative Party from 1990 to 1997 gave what was described as an "insightful" speech to students.

He spoke to his audience about a range of topics, including the importance of education in shaping future leaders.

The former Tory party leader also shared some reflections on his political career, as well as hosting a Q&A session.

Sir John has previously held various cabinet positions under Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and was chancellor of the exchequer from 1989 to 1990.

Toby Leadbetter, head of politics at Kimbolton School, said: “We are incredibly grateful to Sir John Major for taking the time to visit our students.

"Pupils, staff and parents relished the opportunity to hear directly from such an influential figure in our nation’s history and to listen first-hand about his time in office, his thoughts on Brexit, democracy in the modern world and the environment.

"His talk was enlightening and thought-provoking in equal measure and was an enriching experience for our politics students and their parents.”
