Kids, we do OK at school with recycling, but this scares the hell out of me. How can we do much, much better? Tell the student council what you want. I want to hear your ideas. - Mr McMillan https://t.co/2rU2JgaH1I

"For every open door at an Oxbridge college, there are 5 that need to be kicked down. For every employer that wants to engage with work experience, there are 100s that won’t or are scared to do so." Congrats to the students going to Oxbridge to kick the doors down! https://t.co/RDMFs7tDcU

Report by shows Britain's top jobs are disproportionately dominated by the privately educated. Politics, business & the media remain in the grip of those born into wealth & power. But watch this space. Here are some of our 51 pupils with Oxbridge offers this year. https://t.co/V3AihAvOaq

Secretary of State for Education makes passionate speech with fullsome praise for Harris Federation

In his speech on 24th November, Secretary of State for Education Michael Gove said of the Harris Federation   "For generations the working class communities of South London have been tragically ill-served by council-run schools which consistently failed to secure a decent clutch of GCSEs or their equivalent for the overwhelming majority of their pupils.  It was assumed that the children could scarcely be expected to do better, given their backgrounds.  And parents were denied any meaningful information about how their children's schools performed relative to others so they had no real idea how badly they were being betrayed by those who took their votes, council rents and rates for granted. But recently those families have been given an alternative.  Through a combination of league tables - fought by the Labour Party and the unions, schools free of council control - fought by the Labour Party and the unions, and headteachers free to hire who they want and pay them what they want - a principle also fought by the Labour Party and the unions. As a result of these changes we can see that for example the Tory peer Lord Harris of Peckham now runs a dozen comprehensives which were once local authority controlled schools.  They draw pupils from the same communities that they always have, and they enjoy the same level of funding as all their neighbours.  But their results are incomparably better.  Ten times as many students get five good GCSE passes as a few years ago.  The rate of performance improvement is far faster than that of any neighbouring school.  And schools which once struggled to fill their classrooms are now hugely over-subscribed."   The full transcript of his speech can be found at : http://www.conservatives.com/News/Speeches/2011/11/Michael_Gove_A_Liberal_Education.aspx
