Springboard to Success
What a terrific introduction to East Surrey College, and particularly to their very successful 'Springboard' programme for 14-16 year old students, who remain on the school registers but are able to study with the specialist teachers at the College. An encouraging example of the significant impact that ESC is having in close partnership with 10 or so schools nearby, and a further 50 spread throughout the adjoining areas. My sincere thanks to Jayne (Principal and CEO), Kevin (Deputy Principal), Frances (Assistant Principal) - all in the photo - and to the entire senior team, and their engaging ranks of teachers, lecturers and assistants. I can only apologise to the students for not arriving on a horse, and for not bringing my sword!
