Haydon Bridge School in Westminster

2 Haydon Bridge High School Meetings in westminster this week:
- Met with the State Boarding High Schools Association in Westminster midweek, when they had one of their regular meetings with Nick Gibb, MP, the schools Minister. Also met one of the HBHS teachers, who had come to discuss the NASUWT pensions dispute, and much more besides. Have also been asked to come back and talk to the Haydon Bridge sixth form and do a Q & A session with them. I did this before the election in 2010 and am looking forward to doing that again.
Last time I did a Q&A with the 6th form I was really pleased that several of the students took up my offer of coming into the Hexham office to see what we do on their behalf, and also get some work experience in the summer.
