Students at Desborough College have been treated to a double header of high profile visitors.
On Friday Maidenhead MP and Home Secretary Theresa May spent an hour talking to the A-level history and politics students about her life in politics.
The session was organised by Cath Murphy, the head of history and politics at the school.
On Monday afternoon former England cricket captain Andrew Strauss held a question and answer session with the pupils.
Strauss is an ex-pupil at Radley College in Oxfordshire, which is in partnership with the school in Shoppenhangers Road.
Desborough business manager Trisha Jones said: "He spoke about the inspiration and dedication needed to achieve."
Strauss also spoke about the importance of sticking with education, as sportsmen never know if they will get injured.
There was also time for him to sign cricket bats and memorabilia.
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
A teenager who died after getting into difficulty in the Jubilee River has been described as a ‘gentle giant’ in a tribute from his school.
