I enjoyed a really good afternoon chatting to TES reporter Stephen Exley at the end of term, on the last three years, links with Wellington College and our plans for the future.

The interview is published in today’s TES as Academy find change is a game of two halves http://www.tes.co.uk/article.aspx?storycode=6278621

We’ve had our results since then:  47% 5A*-C with EM, excellent A-level results and over 50 boarders starting September.  The second half is looking more positive.

The scarf in question (see below 1).    The LA visitor was actually Councillor Jane Scott, the Leader of Wiltshire Council and a very strong supporter of the academy.  She happened to be here when we hosted a full meeting of the council in our theatre (see below 2).  She’s also a United season ticket holder but I won’t hold that against here.
