(Photograph) - All singing and dancing: the success of schools such as Bridgewater high, in Cheshire, an arts college, has persuaded the Government to allow all secondaries to bid to join the growing club of specialist schools.

This week Prime Minister Tony Blair put the initiative at the heart of his education policy. He denied that the specialist scheme would shut out deprived children by creating a two-tier system and described it as a means of giving excellence to all pupils. News, 6-7.
