I visited two Dover schools on Friday to talk to students about their studies. I dropped by at Dover Grammar School for Boys and St. Edmunds Catholic School to meet with staff and students to discuss progress at the schools.
Both schools have been through difficult times. Like Castle Community Academy in Deal, real improvement has been made. Congratulations to the teachers and staff on their efforts.
I really enjoyed visiting both schools and hearing about the progress pupils are making. I know there are some who seek to rubbish our schools at every turn - they are wrong and it's clear that we are seeing real improvements. A great education is the best way to to realise opportunity and the best possible start in life.
