The Attorney General paid a visit to the 1.2.3.Soleil bilingual school at Desborough College in Maidenhead on Saturday.

Beaconsfield MP, Dominic Grieve, was given a tour and met with pupils at the part-time French school, which is attended by about 200 children from bilingual families every Saturday morning during term time.

1.2.3. Soleil chairman Sophie Ward said: "Dominic's visit is very important as it gives our project recognition and demonstrates to the children that being truly bilingual is a real asset in life."

The visit was organised by South Bucks District councillor Paul Kelly as part of his involvement with the twinning of Burnham with the French village of Saint Denis de l'hôtel.
