Young people are very switched on and up to date with current affairs. So I always enjoy going to speak at our local schools. My trip to DGGS today was no exception. This is a wonderful school with an great academic record, excellent teaching and outstanding students. I spoke to the 6th form and years 10 and 11.
I gave a short talk and answered questions from the girls about working in Westminster and on national issues, then stayed for a lunch of fish and chips with the staff. Many thanks to Matthew Bartlett and the DGGS school community for having me along and making me so welcome. It was a real pleasure to visit the school.
