The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.

Sir Ken Robinson

Welcome back to what we hope will be a better year for education than either 2020 or 2021. Unfortunately, if you follow the news and events closely, you may not feel confident this will be the case. The disparity in beliefs, wants and the calls for a wide variety of actions do not suggest any great certainty this will be the end result. However, being more of an optimist by nature, I can only believe the best option will be achieved and benefit all involved.

Welcome also to a site which has been updated in a number of ways but still has a range of adjustments to be completed. Some changes will be obvious. Others not as visible. Many changes still to be made relate to accessibility. At the same time, we will undoubtedly find what we have done is not perfect after all and will require adjustments or replacement. Please bear with us while we improve the site as much as possible.

Competition information is a surpisingly popular area of the site [both pages]. This section has undergone considerable change as you will see if you revisit either page. We have removed, added and put on hold a range of entries. Completely new entries have a New button. We have not added any buttons with previous inclusions even if they were updated or had additional links added to descriptors. To do so could have swamped the rest of the content. We hope you find the pages easier to use with the range of details for each entry.

We have also re-started the News Headlines for 2022.

If you are aware of additional, quality links for any of the topics covered, we would appreciate information about them. We know there are many we have not come across. We have appreciated your support over previous years and hope you continue to find some value from the site. We will endeavour to continue making it worthwhile throughout the coming year.
