With only a few weeks to go until the General Election, the school will be hosting an Education Question Time, open to the public, on the evening of Wednesday 19 June. The event will bring together Calder Valley election candidates and voters for the question-and-answer meeting.

Baroness Christine Blower will chair the Education Question Time. The platform will consist of prospective parliamentary candidates for the Calder Valley constituency and serving Calderdale headteacher Mungo Sheppard. The Question Time event is being organised by Calderdale Against School Cuts (CASC).

Headteacher Anthony Guise said, "Having spent 10 years as the Headteacher at The Calder Learning Trust I have seen the impact of the decisions made by central government on not just the education community but communities as a whole. I look forward to hearing how our future MP responds to your questions on our education system and your schools."

Sue McMahon, spokesperson for Calderdale Against School Cuts, said, "With education playing such a crucial role in every community, it's time to put education at the heart of this General Election. As ticket numbers are limited, we encourage everyone entitled to vote to book early to avoid disappointment. "
