Nick Clegg will meet students from Stepney Green at the launch of a new diversity project.
The Naz Legacy Foundation Diversity Programme, which is named after Naz Bokhari, the first Muslim and first Asian head teacher in the UK, aims to promote excellence in education and positive integration into British society.
Youngsters from Stepney Green Maths, Computing and Science College are among the students from three London schools who have been invited to the launch at the National Portrait Gallery next Wednesday.
They will have a special opportunity to visit the gallery and chat to the Deputy Prime Minister.
Other dignitaries joining the schoolchildren will include HRH Princess Badiya bint El Hassan, Zac Goldsmith MP and Rt Hon Keith Vaz MP.
