We are holding an interesting panel debate on 17th June 5.30-7.30pm at the IOE, Committee Room 1, that you might be interested in. Space is limited, so if you would like to attend, you should contact Lucian Stephenson at lms56@cam.ac.uk.

The topic will be “Whose schools are they anyway?” and we are looking to debate state school governance. Hopefully it will be a lively evening. If it goes well, our next one will probably look at contemporary issues surrounding higher education.

Our panellists will be Fiona Millar, Local Schools Network, Anastasia de Waal, Deputy Director and Director of Family and Education, Civitas, Ros McMullen, Principal of the David Young Community Academy in Leeds, and Dame Alison Peacock, Head Teacher of the Wroxham School, Potters Bar, Hertfordshire.

The panel will be jointly chaired by myself and Dr Megan Crawford, Reader and Deputy Head of the Faculty of Education, Cambridge University. It is being sponsored by the Leadership for Learning Academic Group, Faculty of Education, Cambridge University, and more information about their work can be found here.
