I visited Shakespeare Primary School this morning...

I had been asked to visit by my colleague Julian Gorton, the headteacher at this wonderful little school, to see the progress they are making and have made over the last ten years. The school reflects the journey we have been on here in Leeds; the opportunities we've had, the challenges we've faced and the successes we've seen. Julian has coached and nurtured his really committed, talented, enthusiastic, passionate and hard working team to achieve something really remarkable at the heart of the city.

It was great to talk to Julian and to walk aroung the school and meet the team and some of the children; who were simply wonderful and reflect the diversity and richness of our great city. This is a school that is releasing the magic and one that I will miss!
