In March, Places and Spaces had our quarterly gathering at Linton Ross's newly renovated home just outside Bath. We've met in each other's homes to catch up on the latest news in the education field, and to see what each other is working on. I am quite intimidated by the other member's cooking skills - Linton served a lovely lunch and the weather in Bath was perfect that day.
Our next meeting will be in Sheffield in June where we will be seeing one of the first parent-promoted schools in their completed building. Forge Valley School was carried out as part of the Building Schools for the Future programme. The physical building is an important part of bringing two different communities together from opposite sides of the Valley. I advised on the design review back in the summer of 2009, and therefore am quite keen to see how it all turned out!
