Roll on the 158s!

I was very nicely surprised to catch a train from Saltburn to my meeting in Redcar this morning and find it was a proper train, not a rattling old pacer.

The struggling school will be transferred to Outwood as its current sponsor, AET, faces a ‘no confidence’ vote from unions— Read on http://www.gazettelive.co.uk/news/teesside-news/failing-school-taken-over-outwood-16228577 This is one of the last achievements of the Labour Council I was proud to be a Cabinet member in. I am sure that, had we not fought so hard for a better future for this school, it would still be in the hands of the discredited and cynical Academies Enterprise Trust (AET).
