Comedienne Suzi Ruffell is visiting the new sixth form at Sir Thomas Fremantle School in Winslow next month.

Suzi, who has just finished a successful month at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, is doing a comedy gig at the sixth form social evening on Thursday September 7.

The gig forms part of a ‘freshers week’ for the school’s new Sixth Form which will include a range of speakers, teamwork activities and social events.

The aim of the event is to integrate new students from outside the Fremantle School and give all of the students more idea about what Sixth Form is about.

Headteacher Darren Lyon described Suzi’s visit as a massive coup for the school.

He said: “My new head of Sixth Form Matt Pike takes the credit for securing Suzi.

“He booked her for an event in the past before she broke into the mainstream and so we are very lucky.”

Tickets for the event are being given to Sixth Form students and their parents but any remaining tickets for the show which starts at 7pm will be sold to the general public after 11am on the day of the event.

To enquire about ticket availability call the school office on 01296 711853 after 11am on September 7.
