As a child of the 70s, computing for me during my school days amounted to a few BBC computers which we could use at lunchtime. Programming amounted to merely scrolling words across a screen and the World Wide Web would have seemed like something from a science fiction novel. The children of today live in… Read More »

Like every school in the country, our working year began with results day.  It can be a nervous time not only for the pupils and parents but for teachers too!  There is, of course, no rational reason to be worried.  The children have been well-prepared and, more importantly, the scripts have been marked and the… Read More »

Feature: Are Proms Pointless?

Ken James Headmaster at Red House School

Last month Red House School held its prom. I wasn’t really looking forward to it and have often said – loudly – that I’m not a great fan of proms. They were an American invention and, until very recently, the U.K. had managed to avoid them. The closest the children came to attending one was watching… Read More »
