Dominic Raab – 2022 Comments on Construction of First Secure School

The comments made by Dominic Raab, the Deputy Prime Minister, on 29 July 2022.

This secure school is a first. It’s effectively a school with prison walls around it that will give the stubborn hard core of young offenders, who need to be in custody, the tailored curriculum and mental health support they need to turn away from crime and get into training and work.

It’s the right thing to do for them and the public, driving down reoffending, and making our streets safer.
