Steve Brine said: "I thought the questions posed by the students were excellent, and it is always a breath of fresh air to be able to chat with young people like this. Personally, I was delighted we were able to take a look at a small class dealing with students on the autism spectrum, and we also spent a great deal of time in the new technology suite.”

He then added: "The students could not have been more professional and pleasant, and are a real credit to Sue Hearle and her team."
