Rutland’s wonderful schools

As Lord-Lieutenant I am invited to join the Governing Bodies of several of Rutland’s wonderful schools.  In the past week I have had the privilege of attending meetings of the Board of Governors of three of them – Uppingham School, Uppingham Community College and Oakham School.  While very different, all of Rutland’s schools share a great determination to deliver the best possible preparation for life for all their pupils.  It is heartening to see their pupils respond to this.
