Lord Freeman, Old Elmhurstian

Elmhurst School for Boys

30th April 2012

I have just returned, with 9 boys and Mr South, from the Houses of Parliament, where we were honoured to be given a tour by Lord Freeman.

Roger Freeman, as he was then, was a schoolboy at Elmhurst in the 1950s and subsequently went to Whitgift, from there to Oxford and into politics. He was a minister in Mrs Thatcher’s cabinet and has been a peer for the past 14 years.

What a superb tour we had. The boys were shown both the House of Commons and the House of Lords, as well as the division lobbies, a select committee room and the Commons terrace. It is truly an amazing building, but what will stick with us all most is the fact that this charming and distinguished gentleman, who gave us so freely of his time, was 60 years ago a pupil at our school.

An inspiring start to the week if ever there was one!
