Derbyshire Conservatives today celebrated a significant victory after months of renewed campaigning for a new school for Glossopdale.     Since being in administration from 2009 to 2013, talks had begun with the school, governors and the community about addressing concerns and bringing the school together at a single new location.  The talks were led by the then Cabinet Member for Education Cllr Mike Longden.     More recently Cllr Longden, along with the Shadow Cabinet Member for Young People and High Peak County Councillor Jocelyn Street, has been applying pressure on the Labour Group to deliver the vision for a new school.  The announcement today, by Derbyshire County Council comes after months of relentless questioning at Cabinet by the Conservative Group.    Cllr Mike Longden stated,   "I am delighted that this new school will be built and that the current administration has delivered on a promise we made whilst in administration."   Cllr Street added,    "It's great to hear that this will now finally happen and that Glossop will get the new school they deserve.  Perseverance really does pay off."
