I am backing the Government's bid to build new grammar schools. Ministers should also look at having more faith schools and more skills education in schools. Parents in Dover, Deal and Kent as a whole see grammar schools and faith-based schools as engines of opportunity and aspiration.
Dover has two brilliant grammar schools. In recent years pupils at Dover Grammar School for Girls have even got better results than students at Eton!
Meanwhile St Edmund's is an excellent faith school. I believe the Government should make it possible for there to be more faith schools in Britain.
It is also vital students are given the best possible life chances by having the choice to learn valuable skills like plumbing, carpentry and electronics in school.
