Huge Boost for Local Schools

Cambridge MP Julian Huppert

The government has today announced an extra £12.5 million to fund extra school places across Cambridgeshire. This is part of a £600 million fund to ensure that all children have access to a school place.

Julian Huppert, Member of Parliament for Cambridge, said "this new money represents a massive win for schools across Cambridgeshire. For too long central government has ignored the need for new places in growing regions such as ours.

Today's announcement, along with the Liberal Democrat pupil premium, will give schools the funding they so desperately need to make sure that every child in Cambridgeshire, no matter what their circumstances, will be given a fair start in life."
