Worth was delighted to welcome Jeremy Quin MP to give a fascinating talk to students last Friday.
Mr Quin, Conservative MP for Horsham since 2015, was appointed Paymaster General and Minister for the Cabinet Office in October, having previously served as Minister of State for Crime, Policing and Fire at the Home Office between September and October.
He was at Worth last week as the latest guest speaker in our Spencer Lecture Series, which is part of our enrichment programme. The series of talks are for Sixth Form students and Year 11 scholars, providing them with thought-provoking, scholarly, creative, philosophical, political, technological or social enriching information.
Year 13 student Simon provided this account of the lecture:
"On 2 December, Worth hosted a Spencer Lecture by Jeremy Quin – a local MP from the Horsham constituency, His Majesty’s Paymaster General and the Minister for the Cabinet Office.
“Mr Quin talked about his previous experience as Minister of State for Crime and Policing and his current jobs, sharing some details about his political contributions – both to the nation and his local community. He also answered questions from the students, discussing important topics such as national defence, the cost of living crisis and energy transformation. At the end of the lecture, he took some ideas and concerns from the pupils from his constituency and promised to represent their voices in his future policymaking.
“Mr Quin’s lecture was a very engaging event, gathering this year’s record audience for these lectures. His visit brought together pupils from diverse social and economic backgrounds, uniting them around our country’s future. His unique insight into politics inspired students to reflect on current challenges such as inflation and the war in Ukraine."
