Yet another meeting today where the HE numbers were up with plenty of new faces. Parents include classical musicians, pub landlady, accountant, GP, engineer, occupational therapist, nurses, ex-teachers and ex-social workers, builders, entrepreneurs and businessmen, IT bods, artists and polymaths of all sorts. Great founts of knowledge upon which to draw.
Another encouraging trend: the ratio of fathers to mothers at the meeting was almost 50:50. Could this mean that the frequently slightly more educationally conservative dads are coming round to the idea that HE is the platinum choice? Nah...more realistically, they were probably there for the rugby.
