MP visits Castle Court

Annette Brook, Castle Court’s local MP spent a morning at the school meeting children and staff.  Although she spoke at assembly, taught pupils in Year 2 about Parliament (they were most impressed by the fact that Mrs Brooke had met the Queen and had seen Big Ben), and held a Question and Answer session with Year 7, Mrs Brooke had primarily been invited as part of the on going programme for girls in Year 8 to show them the variety of career options open to them. Other speakers have been invited for the Spring and Summer Term 2013, including a Old Castellan who, graduated with a first in English from Cambridge three years ago and  has recently had her first book published with Penguin.
