Friday, local MP Stephen Phillips spent the morning at Carre's Grammar School in Sleaford for a debate on whether grammar schools encourage social mobility, before meetings with the School Council and the Senior Prefect Team. Arguing that grammar schools provide opportunities for everyone irrespective of means and that their presence lifts standards in all schools , the motion for their continued survival proposed by Stephen was easily carried. Stephen then gave a master class on public speaking before meeting with those shortly off to University to hear their concerns and what they would like in our town. Speaking afterwards, Stephen said, "It's always a huge privilege to visit our excellent secondary schools across the constituency. It's a truism that these young people are not only our future, but one which looks bright given their enthusiasm for engaging and changing the world which they see . I'm grateful to everyone who I've met with today for telling me their ideas for our community and the Britain we now live in."
