Principal's Assembly 9th July 2021

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

“We set sail on this new sea because there is new knowledge to be gained, and new rights to be won, and they must be won and used for the progress of all people. For space science, like nuclear science and all technology, has no conscience of its own. Whether it will become a force for good or ill depends on man … space can be explored and mastered without feeding the fires of war, without repeating the mistakes that man has made in extending his writ around this globe of ours.

Principal's Assembly 22nd June 2021

I really enjoyed researching the life of Marcelo Bielsa for last week’s assembly. As you know, I’m not a Leeds fan and so knew very little about the man aside from the part he has played in the team’s recent success. I did finish by saying that it could be considered a frivolous choice in comparison to great historic leaders who have changed the direction of history. Football really isn’t that important. I had also recorded the assembly before the game involving Christian Erikkson, another reminder of what really does matter.

Principal's Assembly 15th June 2021

Last Tuesday, I asked you to consider the qualities that outstanding leaders possess and then agree as a group on the one figure – current or historic – who best demonstrates those traits. That’s not necessarily that the chosen leader will have shown all of those characteristics – leaders are humans not saints and consequently share the same human frailties as you and me.

In some ways it is hard to believe that a whole year has passed since the murder of George Floyd. As we watched the video of his brutal final moments, we might have done so with as much fear of what violence might erupt as a consequence of the police actions as optimism for a brighter future.

Principal's Assembly 18th May 2021

FA Cup Final Day is no longer the national tradition it used to be, but what a goal it was to win the cup last Saturday! That was the stuff footballers’ dreams are made of. In fact, what Leicester City has achieved over the last 5 years in winning the premiership and now the FA Cup is beyond the wildest dreams of most the Foxes’ fans.

Principal's Assembly 11th May 2021

Further to the end of last week’s assembly, I would like to tell you that the one time I was sent off at football was a case of mistaken identity. Or, at least, a handball to save a goal in the dramatic end to a nail-biting cup final. But I can’t.

Principal's Assembly 21st April 2021

Good afternoon everyone, A new location for today’s assembly: a change is as good as a rest, as they say! Inevitably, the death and funeral of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, has dominated the media and many people’s thoughts over the last few days.

Principal's Assembly 13th April 2021

Welcome back everyone. I hope that you’ve all enjoyed your Easter break, though I know that our Year 11 and Upper Sixth students will have had less chance to relax. As I’m sure their teachers will be telling them this week, the mini-tests for our second round of assessments did arrive during the holiday and my colleagues will be busy preparing them for their next chances to impress.

Principal's Assembly 9th March 2021

For the last year, we have been told regularly that the Government is “following the science”. 12 months ago, very few of us would have heard of Professor Chris Whitty, the Government’s Chief Medical Officer and somewhat fortuitously an epidemiologist by trade, or his deputy, Professor Jonathan Van Tam, now known affectionately as JVT.

If your school’s name has almost become a by-word for upper class privilege and eight of the last ten years have seen former pupils running this country, any kind of controversy is bound to attract media attention.

I will tell anyone who listens that The West Wing is the best drama ever made for tv. Aired between 1999 and 2006 (but all available on Netflix), it follows the fictional presidency of Democrat Jed Bartlet, played by Emmy and Golden Globe winning film star Martin Sheen.

Last month, the BBC sent a survey to 1068 elite sportswomen in 39 different sports. It covered many different topics, including how much they earn, the level of coaching they receive, whether they have witnessed sexism or racism in their sports and whether they felt the media covered men and women’s sport differently

New York was a very different place in the 1960s to the city you know today. Crime, for example, was a persistent problem in certain parts of the city. In the early hours of March 13th 1964, 28 year old Kitty Genovese was returning home from work in the Queens district. As she approached her apartment, she was attacked and killed.
