I am thrilled to congratulate Leicester College on being recognised as a Centre of Excellence for maths! 

The college is the only Centre of Excellence in maths in the whole of Leicestershire and only the second one in the whole of the East Midlands!

This is fantastic news and a real testament to dedication of the leadership team and teachers at the college who work so hard to support those students who are struggling to understand maths.

It is absolutely essential that young people leave education with their GCSE and a good understanding of maths if they are to succeed and continue to grow in their future careers.

This recognition will equip the college with extra resources to provide help and support to even more students, not just from the college but right across our city and the region.

I had the huge honour this week in congratulating Fullhurst Community College after they were awarded a Silver Pearson Teaching Award for the School of the Year – Making a difference category. 

I am thrilled that Fullhurst has been awarded this prestigious prize. It’s a real testament to the dedication, passion and hard work of the teachers, who always go the extra mile. 

This week they have been nationally recognised for making a huge difference to young people’s lives – I could not be prouder of them all.

As we celebrate the 70th birthday of the NHS, I was delighted to join Macmillan this week to recognise the vital role they have played in our NHS since its creation in 1948.

Macmillan was founded in 1911, before the NHS was born, and was a vital source of help and information for patients and doctors on how to recognise, treat and prevent cancer.

Since the creation of the NHS in 1948, Macmillan have invested millions of pounds and played a vital role in our health service. There are now over 2,000 Macmillan nurses supporting cancer patients and their families right across the country.

I recently visited Leicester’s Royal Infirmary where I saw first-hand how vital the partnership is between Macmillan and our NHS.

Over the coming years our NHS and social care services will face huge challenges and more must be done to ensure they last for another 70 years and beyond. However, today is a day to celebrate our NHS, be proud of what it stands for and all the people who work in it.
