Prominent historian and author professor Robert Tombs from Cambridge University opened a newly refurbished Learning Resource Centre at Longsands Academy on November 26.
Professor Tombs spoke to staff, students and invited guests and then gave a talk to the school's history and politics society.
Longsands Academy and Astrea Sixth Form have invested £30,000 of capital investment funds in developing the Learning Resource Centre to ensure it can provide students with a modern, welcoming central resources provision at the heart of the school site.
Principal and deputy director of education of Astrea, Hywel Jones, said: "We are delighted to open this Learning Resource Centre, representing as it does our commitment to provide high levels of academic support to all of our students."
