Miliband opens amalgamated Mexborough school

LABOUR leader Ed Miliband joined pupils and teachers in Mexborough today to celebrate the official opening of Montagu Primary School.

The infants and juniors previously operated as two separate sites, but they have now amalgamated to become a single primary school under one roof.

The Doncaster North MP marked the school’s opening by performing a ribbon cutting ceremony with headteacher John Scatchard.

Mr Miliband said: “I have been on a tour of the new school and I am very impressed with what I have seen.”
