Commenting on the news that the Department for Education has given permission for a free secondary school to be opened in Kingston, Edward Davey, Member of Parliament for Kingston and Surbiton has said:
The Coalition Government has announced a £320,145 boost for school sports in Kingston from September. Every state primary school in Kingston will receive funding for sports in 2013/14 and 2014/15, including:
• Approximately £10,000 for Lovelace Primary School • Over £9,000 for St Andrews and St Marks Primary School • Over £9,000 for Tolworth Junior School
On Friday 15th March Edward Davey, Member of Parliament for Kingston and Surbiton visited Kingston College to chat with their apprentices and to see their activities planned for Comic Relief.
Upon arrival Edward agreed to take part in one of their fundraisers – having his nails painted red whilst wearing a red wig and red nose. Edward took the opportunity to listen to the experiences of the hair and beauty apprentices at the college.
After a session with nail polish remover, Edward visited the college’s engineering department, and met a number of people training to join the apprenticeship scheme run by British Airways, which is highly competitive.
More than 1100 people were on an apprenticeship last year in Kingston and Surbiton according to the latest figures. That is a huge increase, especially when compared to the final year of the last Labour government.
