Watch the video below to see Rona Pryme, Executive Principal at Skegness Infant Academy and Skegness Junior Academy, speak about the benefits of this exciting new partnership for pupils and the Lincolnshire seaside town of Skegness.
Speaking to the BBC's culture editor, Rona said:
"We don't think of Skegness as the centre of the culture universe, but we have to challenge those ways of thinking.

If it sparks one child to go into an alternative career, that's a good thing."
