Quotes

Ben was deeply touched by the experience. He said: "This powerful animal was lying there unconscious, quivering, vulnerable and defenceless."
Chairman of the Governors of Sherborne School, Gordon Parry said:  "The Governing Body has decided that there is a need for change in the strategic direction of the leadership of the School as well as in aspects of its execution. There is absolutely no element whatsoever of untoward activity on the part of the outgoing Headmaster, or any other member of the staff, that has led to or contributed to this decision."
"There is a fear that some employers will take advantage of the insecurity that comes with self-employment to intimidate them into cutting corners."
...But this is not "Eton on the cheap" and Holyport children are not "poor cousins", says Boyle. "It's my job to run the school. We have to forge our own pathways and identity."
