Gavin Williamson has been to Childhaven Nursery, East Ayton Primary School, Gladstone Road School and Scarborough 6th Form.

Gavin, who was sacked as Defence Secretary by Theresa May, was born and educated in the town.

He says he's been finding out what benefits £6 million of investment in education in the area has brought.

The town was selected as an 'Educational Opportunity Area' by the government, receiving the money over two years.

The idea was to break the link between where a child comes from and the advantages available to achieve.

Gavin has spoken to Yorkshire Coast Radio's Jon Burke..
