Sky News discussing discriminatory faith schools

I was on Sky News discussing the new Catholic school opening in Hampton Water, Peterborough. This will be the first fully selective state-funded faith school to open in over ten years – and it is opening in spite of strong local opposition. 

This school, which will choose pupils on grounds of religion, will also inevitably divide children along ethnic and socio-economic lines. In a society more diverse than ever, we need to bring children from all backgrounds together so that they can learn from, and with, each other.
