Diversity of School Provision - Children, Schools and Families Committee Contents

Supplementary memorandum submitted by Patrick Derham, Head Master, Rugby School

  It was very good to meet you on 7 May and I hope that you, and the Committee, felt it to be a helpful session. We spoke briefly at the end about curriculum. Would you like to see some detail about what we are doing, and in particular with regard to Extended Projects? Enclosed is a copy of a leaflet (and programme)[8] that we have produced for a Conference we held on 13 May. I am quite clear that the approach we are pioneering has the potential to liberate pupils and teachers from the constraints of the traditional exam system that better prepares them for the transition to Higher Education.
