Visit from James Gray, North Wiltshire MP


On Friday 13 May, Mr James Gray, Conservative MP for North Wiltshire, visited Bradon Forest School to meet with students to discuss the life of an MP. The students, from years 7 to 10, grilled Mr Gray on hot topics such as the EU referendum, how effective an MP can be and various educational policies.

“It was really interesting to learn that anyone can become an MP, not just those attending the bigger universities. It’s easy to grow up thinking that politics don’t matter, but they affect everyone.” Year 8 student.

Mr Gray spoke to the groups about the impact an individual can have and how it’s important to fight for causes you believe in.

“This was an invaluable experience for some of our more able students, not least because it encourages them to consider an alternative career.” Ms Hunter, Assistant Headteacher

Dr Morrison, Headteacher at Bradon Forest School, invited Mr Gray to cut the first sod for the school's new sports hall during his visit. This is a very exciting time for the school as the building starts for their long awaited new sports facility. The school is well known for it’s continued basketball success, not least because the numerous school teams have triumphed despite having to play every game away from home. The new hall will be open later in the year and the school look forward to hosting local tournaments on site.
