Ben Davies, a year 10 student at Millbrook Academy, was lucky enough to interview the Secretary for Education, Michael Gove, on 21stJune at Gloucester Media Centre, along with four other students from schools around Gloucestershire. The interview was set to take place via Skype and was organised by Ian Mean, Editor in Chief of The Citizen.

Jan Scott, Head teacher as Millbrook Academy congratulated Ben on his achievement said “I am delighted to see a student from Millbrook Academy representing young people from across Gloucestershire. This is a challenging time for education and it is a real pleasure that one of our students in interviewing such a key political figure. Well done Ben!”  

Unfortunately, Gove was called to parliament at the last minute and, therefore, the interview did not go ahead. Instead, Ian Mean asked the students to stay and help with editing and publishing the final edition of The Young Citizen.

After returning from his day out at Gloucestershire Media Centre with a big smile on his face, Ben said “This was a really valuable experience and I would like to thank both the school and Ian Mean for presenting me with this amazing opportunity.”
