A FORMER education secretary helped students at a Royston school celebrate their record-breaking exam results.

Baroness Shirley Williams presented the youngsters with their certificates under the gaze of parents, relatives and friends

As Royston’s MP, Baroness Williams had attended the official opening of the school, 42-years-ago, along with the then Minister for Education, Sir Edward Boyle.

She said: “Meridian is a first-rate school for all of you. A school that has done everything that it can to keep up with these changes.

“To get you to think about them, not to opt out, but to think about and to get you to work away at trying to understand them better.”
