Thank you very much for inviting me to be part of the excellent Teach Meet event on Friday.  It was wonderful to be able to host such an impressive gathering and I can only say how impressed I was by the very professional way in which you set everything up. There is little doubt that all the attendees at our first Teach Meet will have been able to discern a whole range of interesting ideas of very different types during the sessions.

I am absolutely sure that the very high quality of the presentations made by every one of the Aldenham staff who took part will have been noted by all those who were present and will have demonstrated that we can be developing exciting and effective strategies for our colleagues in the context of this school.  This is a great testimony to the Teach Aldenham team and your great commitment.

Later that evening I came across some advice for Heads with which I fully concur. “Bottle the teachers who are young at heart – infect everyone with their talents.”  I very much hope that this sort of infection is what we will see in the months and years to come undoubtedly set in motion by your efforts.

Congratulations to you all.



James Fowler,

Headmaster, Aldenham School
