Former chief Government spin doctor Alastair Campbell visits Retraite RC Girls’ School, Clapham

A former chief Government spin doctor visited a school last Friday where he met sixth form students studying politics.

Alastair Campbell spoke about his career and told students about his dealings with leading politicians and world statesmen and women.

A question and answer session ensued with him taking questions from students at La Retraite RC Girls’ School in Atkins Road, Clapham Park, on the possibility of a second Brexit referendum, the rapid change of the demographics of the UK and the future of education for young people.

Head of politics Mr Regan said: “This was a fantastic opportunity for our students to listen to someone of immense political stature.

No issue was off the table and the students’ engagement was a testament to his passion and storytelling.”

Mr Campbell later tweeted: “Fantastic session with La Retraite politics and history sixth formers in Lambeth.

Really bright, aspirational students. Informed questions and so much passion.”
