The Prime Minister visited Highfield Preparatory School in Maidenhead on Friday afternoon to open a new eco-garden.
Theresa May spoke to pupils at the school in West Road about her role and then answered questions from the children in assembly.
One pupil asked the prime minister how many shoes she had, to which she replied ‘not enough’.
She was also presented flowers and teddy and after assembly she cut the ribbon for the new eco-garden with headteacher Joanna Leach.
Joanna said: “As a girls school we are all very proud to see a woman, not only as our local MP, but as the prime minster of the country.
“I’m sure that all of girs here today have been inspired by the visit and you never know, there may be a future prime minister amongst us.”
The school has a bronze eco award and is trying to get its silver.
The garden has a plants, a bird table, and is a place the students can spend time with their friends.
