Cheltenham’s schools are some of the best in the country. Thanks to talented teachers and head teachers they are delivering better outcomes year on year, as this summer’s A level and GCSE results showed.
The highlight of the Party Conference in Manchester for me has been the announcement of a major boost in funding for schools. From next year, schools from Balcarras to All Saints’ Academy will receive at least £5,000 per pupil per year.
The campaign to save Cheltenham’s A&E is stepping up a gear. Earlier this week I hand-delivered hundreds of responses to NHS bosses’ "engagement exercise" about the future of healthcare in Gloucestershire.
