The High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire, Mrs Francesca Skelton, and her husband John recently visited three of Aylesbury’s most prominent educational institutions. The visit began at the newly-opened University Campus Aylesbury Vale where Mrs. Skelton viewed the facilities with Chief Executive Ian Harper.  

Mrs. Skelton’s next stop was at the Buckinghamshire University Technical College where she met students and staff including newly-appointed Principal Bob Harrison.

The tour ended at Aylesbury College where Mrs. Skelton viewed a number of classes and chatted to students alongside College Principal Karen Mitchell. Mr. and Mrs. Skelton then enjoyed lunch with all of the day’s hosts at Aylesbury College’s Harding’s Restaurant.  

Mrs. Skelton said that the visits had been a great experience for her and her husband and commented: “I was so impressed with the new University Campus Aylesbury Vale.  I applaud this significant partnership between Bucks New University, Aylesbury College and Aylesbury Vale District Council. This inspiring new building transforms the whole area as it opens up the canal and creates an exciting public space.

“Even more importantly, it brings education, training and skills right into the heart of Aylesbury and its economy. Aylesbury now has a powerful offer of the successful Aylesbury College, the new University Technical College and the University Campus all working in positive partnership with business to drive forward the skills of Buckinghamshire.”
