The sun was shining for our cream tea forum event sponsored by Thorpe Park on Thursday 9th July 2015, the venue, Strodes College, Egham.
Two speakers from Strode’s, Rowan Cookson, then Deputy Principal, and Amanda Down Director of Teaching and Learning and James Thorpe, Deputy Head of The Magna Carta School, outlined the major changes to GCSE’s,
A Levels and BTECs which started this September. Information can be found at: www.gov.uk/government/organisations/department-for-education and use the search facility for the topic of your choice.
The Principal of Strode’s, Anne Fielding Smith, was thanked for all the support and time that she had given to the work of the Runnymede Business Partnership as she was retiring at the end of August. Rowan Cookson is now Principal of Strode’s. A brief presentation was also made by Steve Tindall, Head teacher of The Holy Family RC Primary School, the winners of a Magna Carta 800 related challenge. The Runnymede South Confederation of Schools organised the competition to find a means of keeping the Magna Carta history and principles alive today and into the future. The Holy Family School winning project is the proposal to have a wooden ‘Table of Unity’ in each of our schools, where pupils will be able to agree rules, resolve differences, debate and listen to and share ideas. They are seeking expert advice and sponsorship, to help children to celebrate this historic legacy.
