Politics Students chance encounter with Eric Pickles
A group of Stamford Endowed Schools AS Politics students bumped into Eric Pickles last weekend during a Geography trip. Year 12 students; Amelia Rome, Sophie Milner, Claudia Riddington and Hector Adcock were able to quiz the Conservative Party Chairman over events at the party conference that very weekend. Over a KFC, Mr Pickles expressed his high hopes for the outcome of the conference, and wished our students well with their studies. The group were very pleased to have bumped into him, currently being in the middle of a unit on Political Parties and said "He was very friendly and we only wish we could have grilled him for longer over the government's policies!"
