'Learning outside the classroom builds character and helps children thrive - it can't become the preserve of independent schools'

Dr Bernard Trafford headteacher of the Royal Grammar School, Newcastle upon Tyne and a former chair of the Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference explains that 'real education' is about developing rounded, resilient individuals who also happen to score best when it comes to those necessary certificates.

“The danger in concentrating solely on results is that we too easily forget what real education is about. “Real education” – I’ll stick my neck out and use that term.

For education is about the whole person, not about qualifications gained.

Moreover, it’s rounded, resilient individuals who score best when it comes to those necessary certificates.

There: I’ve said it. It’s about resilience and building the whole character.”

Parents, report to my office immediately!

Clarissa Farr has been high mistress of Britain’s top girls’ school, St Paul’s, for more than 10 years.

Alumni at St Paul’s include the Labour politician Harriet Harman, the broadcaster Rachel Johnson and the actresses Rachel Weisz and Jennifer Saunders. Farr has presided over this hothouse for bluestockings, which regularly tops exam league tables, for the past 11 years. Unexpectedly, however, a few weeks ago she announced she was to step down.

As she prepares to step down, she tells Sian Griffiths of The Times what every mum and dad should know about raising high-flying — and happy — teenagers.
