Ashmount pupils and staff were pleased to welcome Lady Gretton, HM Lord-Lieutenant of Leicestershire, for a tour of the school this month.
Following her visit, Lady Gretton wrote, "I so enjoyed my visit to Ashmount. Thank you so much for giving me such a comprehensive tour of the school. There was such a happy and peaceful atmosphere wherever we went and I was so impressed by everything I saw.
You have a wonderful new school with fantastic facilitites, but it was the staff with the children who so obviously impressed me. The staff were so dedicated and the children were obviously so happy.
I send you all my best wishes for the future and for the continual progress of the school."
