Event Details

Join us for our Supper Club event, where we have invited some special guest speakers to discuss the State of our Schools. We are excited to be hosting our first St Neots & Mid Cambs constituency Supper Club and invite you to join us for what promises to be a fascinating discussion, Q&A, good food, drink and the obligatory Lib Dem raffle.

We are delighted to be joined by Vic Goddard, Headteacher at Passmores Academy. Vic will share with us his view of education as it stands now and how he would seek to bring about change that truly supports young people, their communities and the education profession to deliver a school system that is actually ‘world class’. Vic and our own Stephen Drew will also talk about Educating Essex and the experience of being a tv school!”

In the course of the evening we will be serving a hot buffet and desserts* and there will be a cash bar serving alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages as well as hot drinks. We will also have the obligatory Lib Dem raffle so you could come away with some goodies too!

If you have a raffle prize you would consider donating, or if you could help us cook a dish or bake some pudding, we would be very grateful, expenses for ingredients available. Please contact Sarah on scjlibdem@gmail.com

All funds raised will go to the SNMC Constituency General Election campaign to get Ian elected as our first ever Lib Dem MP!

This event is open to friends and family, not just Lib Dem members, so please do feel free to forward to anyone who might find it interesting.

About Vic Goddard

Vic Goddard came into public view several years ago through Educating Essex, a fly-on-the-wall documentary filmed in the Harlow secondary school he leads and capturing the ups and downs, tears and laughter of typical school life.

It was a seminal and highly popular TV programme that spawned several spin-off series, not to mention a great deal of publicity in the national press, a highlight of which was being referred to as ‘the worst headteacher in the country’ by the Daily Mail, a rag that never lets the facts get in the way of its prejudices. 

Thrust into the limelight, Vic became a national figure and is still a regular visitor to various breakfast TV sofas to talk about the latest government policies or educational issues of the day, as well as a founding member of the Headteacher’s Roundtable pressure group.

He also found time to write a book entitled The Best Job in the World, a title he only occasionally regrets as he goes about doing such an inspirational leadership role, despite the immense pressures of Ofsted, underfunding and the relentless pressure to achieve ever-better exam results.
