I’m very pleased to have been given the opportunity to contribute to The Future of Assessment, a collection of essays for AQA – with huge thanks to Dale Bassett for inviting me to join the group. It was fascinating to meet the other contributors.

A launch event was held at the House of Commons in the Churchill Room on July 8th and I was invited to give a short speech – a massive thrill for me.
I took some of my students along for the experience, and my colleague Rachel Landon, Assistant Head, responsible for student leadership (amongst many other things.)

Amazing! Blogging (and of course your experience of T&L) has led to your first speech in the House of Commons!
I know! Crazy stuff. It was a huge thrill. Cheers Ross.
