Joe Nutt reminds us that educational research is often politically-driven and usually with an agenda. Yet we all recognise the importance of evidence-led pedagogy. There's very little true research out there, he argues.

Robert Verkaik and Prof Francis Green answer delegates' questions: "if the state sector was better resourced, we wouldn't need private schs". Fair point. But the private schs sector doesn't want to be a default choice as part of a deficit model.

Prof Francis Green recognises private educ outcomes are better at all ages. But av bursaries haven't increased over last 20 years. If true, that's surprising & challenging for our sector.

Robert Verkaik and Prof Francis Green join us at conference to spark debate on independent education. Verkaik: you can buy an advantage for your child and the more money you have, the bigger the advantage. So does the system work for the majority or the few?

Prof Robert Plowin updates on role of genetics in education. Disparages Growth Mindset as "bulls..t". That's hard to take, but do we need to look deeper? Many schools hang a curriculum on this.

Many independent schools offer a progressive curriculum yet don't suffer behavioural issues. So there's another dynamic at play. Or is suggesting that underfunded school systems must only promote didactic methods?

Really worth checking out the compositions on our website. The creativity of the children in our schools never fails to astound me. Children everywhere are the most creative force on the planet, if given the opportunities, love and nourishment to thrive.
