Hinds must be courageous enough to do just that, to ensure universities are better, fees are lower, and young people get the technical or academic education that suits them.

Damian Hinds has been appointed as the new Education Secretary after Justine Greening resigned from the Government.

"Greening was unpopular with officials, she frustrated reformers, and she exasperated the prime minister", Mr Timothy writes in The Daily Telegraph today. He also accused her of blocking proposals to cut university tuition fees.

"She made Nicky Morgan, a managerial education secretary, resemble Michael Gove, education's great radical".

Timothy, who quit Downing Street in June after the Conservative Party lost its majority in what turned out to be a disastrous general election, dismissed suggestions he had played a part in convincing May to sack Greening but admitted he agreed with the decision.

The claim has been refuted by the Tory.

Mr Timothy, who left Number 10 after being blamed for the Tories' lacklustre election campaign a year ago, said Ms Greening had never dissented in public from Ms May's proposals to allow new grammars and increase sponsorship of state schools by universities, private schools and the Catholic Church.

He denied lobbying for Ms Greening's sacking but described Mr Hinds" promotion as "the bright point in an otherwise limited set of changes'.

Since becoming prime minister, Theresa May has vowed to scrap the rules which state new faith schools must admit at least 50 per cent of students from other faiths.

David Davis, Boris Johnson, Phillip Hammond and Amber Rudd all retained their jobs, as did Jeremy Hunt and Greg Clark after the pair refused to move Department.

Nick Timothy said Ms Greening, who quit the Government after refusing a proposed move to become work and pensions secretary, opposed plans for a review to cut fees, forcing the reforms into the long grass.
