What is school for and why does it matter?

Clarissa Farr, former head of St Paul’s Girls’ School in West London, looks back at an extraordinary career in education, and gives a rallying call for change. What are the challenges faced by teachers and students today? How do we educate girls to become tomorrow’s leaders? What is the role of school in a modern, virtual world?

Farr takes a provocative look at our education system, and reveals the changes we must make if we care about the future of our schools and young people.
