The 'Back to School' Breakfast
Most of us like to ease ourselves gently into a new job but that didn’t exactly work out for Rosie McColl. Just ten weeks after joining Brighton Girls school as head, she found herself in a situation where there were no rules and no precedents. As Covid-19 beat its path across the country, schools closed and pupils had to learn from home. Corridors, classrooms and science labs fell silent.
While fears remain about the effects on our young people’s education and mental health, Covid could yet have a long-term benefit. Schools have been striving to equip their students for the modern world, while the exam system has remained pretty much unchanged for 160 years. Could the pandemic finally be the catalyst for change?
At our July breakfast - which, like Rosie’s school is virtual – she will talk about finding a creative solution to some of the inherent contradictions in the education system. How can businesses and schools work together? How can we improve the relationship between schools and their local community?
Our monthly breakfast also offers great opportunities for networking in small groups. So grab your croissants and flick on the kettle – we hope to see you there.
