And that’s not all. We are also looking at a subject that is close to the heart of many independent schools: partnerships. When I reached out to schools to find out their stories I was inundated with responses, as so many independent schools are already working with their local community. I interviewed Shaun Fenton, Headmaster of Reigate Grammar School, about this and he summed it up perfectly when he said, “It’s almost impossible to find an independent school that isn’t working in partnership with sections of its local community.” And he was right – see just a snapshot of these partnerships on pages 37-41.
