Lord Lexden talks to students at Colchester Royal Grammar School

First published in News by

LEXDEN’S homegrown lord returned home to talk to students at the school he had wanted to go to.


Lord Lexden was born in Lexden and went to Holmwood House in nearby Chitts Hill.
He had hoped to go on to Colchester Royal Grammar School but instead was sent to the independent Framlingham College in Suffolk.


He finally got his chance to go to the grammar school where he spoke to sixth form students about the function of the House of Lords.


During his speech, the Tory peer defended its role as a delaying and revising chamber without the ultimate power of veto.
