Alex was delighted to be asked to contribute to the High School Leckhampton's Time Capsule Project.
The letter drafted by Alex was addressed to the HSL pupils of the future, and will be placed in a time capsule to be unearthed in their new premises in fifty years’ time.
Alex reflected on the importance of education, in the context of the present challenges of war in Ukraine and the ongoing recovery from the pandemic.
The letter, which was hand-signed by the Prime Minister and Secretary of State for Education, also contained a lapel badge that Alex wore during President Zelensky's historic video-link address to MPs in the House of Commons.
The letter marked a milestone in a journey which began when Alex first became Cheltenham’s MP in 2015. Within weeks he was confronted with the so-called ‘Leckhampton Triangle’ problem, whereby local secondary school students were unable to secure places in nearby secondary schools causing enormous distress.
Alex vowed then to campaign for a new school to fix the crisis.
Alex is delighted that seven years and £30m later, the High School Leckhampton is close to completion.
