Visit to St Crispin’s School


On Friday I visited St Crispin’s School. I was invited to tour the buildings, and to see the┬árecently built ┬áScience block. It provides excellent new accommodation for science, and is in an architectural style which blends well with the distinctive twentieth century concrete structures of the listed buildings of the main school.

I stopped to answer questions in the sixth form Business/Economics class. Issues raised included the impact of a possible tax on sugar, the likely effect of cutting the top rate of tax and the balance of the UK’s trade with the rest of the world.

I am grateful to the Chairman of Governors, Head and Deputy Head for showing me round and being so enthusiastic about their school.

    Needless to say the EU sugar price is far higher that the real word price already. Silly subsidies for uneconomic Sugar Beet and the likes.

    I do however find nearly every prepared commercial food product to be over sweet and over salty so I do not eat them much. I would welcome some reductions.
