Schools’ Question Time

Last night I was a panel member at the BBC Schools’ Question Time event hosted and organised by the students at Cator Park School in Beckenham.

I’m not usually nervous about speaking events or public meetings but I was a bit worried last night. It wasn’t just about my own performance, even though I was up against Vernon Coaker MP, Ben Whittaker (Vice President of the NUS) and Fiona Miller (Alistair Campbell’s partner and passionate campaigner for comprehensive only education) but because there was a lot riding on the success of the night.

Schools all over the country take part and two students from each of the top three schools get to work on the production team of the BBC’s flagship program. I thought that the evening went extremely well, the students were very professional and the audience asked some testing questions.

I with the team at Cator Park School the best of luck in the competition.
