Mike finishes a busy week of Meetings and School visits in his new Portfolio


It has been a busy but interesting week of meetings and school visits this week. A steep learning curve but really heartened by the support from teaching professionals and officers at Medway Council.

Today I visited the Oaks part of the Silver Bank complex and met with the Head Teacher Paul Cottam who I am pictured with above.

I took the opportunity of discussing educational issues with Paul and in particular the change over of the Oaks to becoming The Inspire special free school

Then it was off to the Rochester Grammar School a tremendously successful school where I met the Executive Principal Denise Shepherd , Head Teacher Stuart Gardner and the Chair of Governors Peter Martin.


Finally, it was off to Walderslade Primary School where I met the Head Teacher Mrs Milne and the Deputy Head Mr Paul Dadson. Once again we discussed Education issues and concerns and I enjoyed a tour round the school, meeting pupils and teachers.


Last night I visited Rainham Mark Grammar School for the final Secondary School Admissions 2014 Presentation.

An excellent presentation attended by some 150 parents and prospective pupils.

Next week? Even busier!
