The end of the academic year, whilst the summer holiday beckons, is a time for reflection. Our five panellists on this year’s summer roundtable cite Schools Together, boarding investment and growing awareness of pupil wellbeing as highlights of the year. What were yours? We’d love to hear – send in your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meanwhile, change is afoot. This month, Hilary Moriarty looks at the world of careers advice, Sue Parfett examines the growth of organic food and a number of schools plan to use the summer holidays to work on estates development. And don’t miss page 40, where Dr Mark Abell discusses the appetite for British schools overseas. This month’s interview is with the head of Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) Bristol, which is on the cusp of a major change as the centuries-old school prepares to admit girls into the sixth form from September 2017.
Love sport? Our dedicated quarterly school sports mag Independent School Sport (ISS) is also out now, celebrating the latest sporting achievements. Want to be featured in ISS? Send me your news and views to the email address above.
That’s all from us for now – we’ll be back with our September issue after your well-earned summer break.
Until next time,
Editor, Independent Education Today
