Happy New Year! I am proud to be the first BSA Chair of the new decade to represent members and associates of the organisation.
Having benefited from the BSA and its training for 25 years, I have seen first hand the important work done by the BSA and the impact they have made on the boarding community. As a Headmaster for 10 years, I have had the challenge of leading schools through difficult times both politically and socially and very much look forward to assisting the team at BSA to navigate what is warming up to be another difficult time for boarding schools.
Our theme and focus throughout this year is celebrating ‘Diversity’ in our boarding community both in the UK and overseas. In so many ways our world is more connected than ever but often more at odds than ever. Boarding offers a true opportunity for different cultures, race, religion, and views to come together to learn and grow.
