3:43pm Thursday 27th February 2014

SHADOW Education Secretary Tristram Hunt is visiting Archway School this afternoon.

Mr Hunt has joined Labour's parlimentary candidate for Stroud, David Drew, on a tour of the school with headteacher Colin Belford.

It comes after a visit from Education Secretary Michael Gove last month.

Mr Hunt was due to discuss the current proposal for a Steiner Free School in Stroud.

The Labour Party believes that the Government's Free School programme is damaging education standards.

More to follow.
