The Secretary of State for Education, Rt Hon Nicky Morgan MP spent the day in Leicestershire visiting schools and projects that support pupils and prevent them from becoming disengaged with the education system.



It was a real pleasure (although really nerve racking) to host our version of a celebration and conference!

A special thank you to our Chairman, David Legh and Leader of the Council Richard Blunt for their contribution with an extra special thank you to Richard Gerver for his incredible hour of inspiration!

Our young people were exceptional and I would like to thank all of them, with a special thanks to Chloe who was in charge of the canapés that I forgot to mention on the evening!! And thanks to staff, volunteers and tutors that helped out - most greatly appreciated!

We have produced a short video from a Richard sound bite. Hope you enjoy. There will be more episodes to come in the new year.
