Having one of our new school buildings opened by the Prime Minister was fantastic but to have two opened by two different Prime Ministers is simply amazing...

Gordon Brown officially opened the brilliant new Allerton High School building yesterday. He was accompanied by Ed Balls, Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families. The Prime Minister and Ed Balls were greeted by head teacher Elaine Silson and the head boy and girl of the school, before the Prime Minister cut the ribbon to open the wonderful new building described by the Prime Minister as a model for the future.
“This school is conceived as a 21st century school, one that will lift the ambitions and aspirations of young people in this area…I believe it will be a model for other schools around the country in years to come.”

Thi is another new high and, after our success at the BSF Awards, I hope colleagues will be even more proud of what they have achieved with this brilliant new building.
