Reading - The Head's Study

To Kindle or to Book? Having bid farewell to our lucky group of Jasper skiers on Wednesday with their enormous, colourful suitcases, I wonder how many of them deliberated, as I do, about how to balance my love of a real book with the realities of limited packing space when going away?

Thoughts from the Head - Success

What does success look like in 2020? I spoke to Sixth Formers today about seminal moments during my own sixth form experience. This included a count of personal failures: 1 x music scholarship; 2 x Oxbridge rejections; 3 x driving tests.
