Pictured with Mrs Susie Drake, and Dr Judith Greene, in the grounds of Haltwhistle First School. There is no doubt that the team at Haltwhistle Community Campus have really begun to turn the school around. With a new team of headteachers, working with a enthusiastic governing body, there is a different atmosphere and a positivity at the school. I stayed for lunch with the children - my favourite pupil was the young lady from Haltwhistle who was keen to study Astro Physics at Harvard. Now that is aspiration, and all credit to her. This is a school that is on the up. I also did a surgery and door knocking in the town on Saturday. Good responses all round.
