Sir Patrick McLoughlin MP Officially Opens Hilltop's Rainbow Room

Sir Patrick McLoughlin MP helped to bring UK Parliament Week to life on Friday with a visit to Hilltop. This year, UK Parliament Week has focused on the suffragette movement, and pupils in Years 4, 5 and 6 spent time learning about women of influence, before Sir Patrick held a question and answer session. Mrs Sadula said “Sir Patrick kindly came to talk about his life as an MP. The children were inspired and are now hoping to visit Westminster in the future.”


Sir Patrick also officially opened the Rainbow Room, the base of Hilltop’s Enhanced Resource provision for children with physical learning disabilities. Mrs Jaques said “The Rainbow Room is a wonderful addition to our facilities and the local authority have done a superb job from start to finish!”
