Our area will be based on a similar area that sits in the National Botanical Gardens. The idea of raised ponds is to support […]

A Blog – Howard Burge speaks out about Bullying #antibullyingweek


Trying to be top dog or leader of the pack is something that has been prevalent in the civilized world since it began. Human nature leads some of our brilliant species to want to claim the top spot as leader of the race, some by virtue of honesty and integrity, and some by less scrupulous means. It is the sadder side of base human nature that breeds what we see all too often – bullying and cat calling amongst social groups, and now more than ever online, via the numerous social media accounts available to young people. From Twitter to Pinterest, Snapchat to Instagram and a whole host of […]

A blog – Gary Williams – The Question of Supply

gw 2016

Today we woke to a popular breakfast television show discussing the role of supply agencies in England. I listened with interest as a very eloquent Becca Morgan of Principal Teachers defended our sector’s position within the education community. She was met with questions about the charges agencies make in supplying staff, the quality of teachers provided and how agencies make profit. It opened up a can of worms for the industry in terms of what is being delivered by a number of agencies with regards to their integrity. I wanted to respond today to celebrate what New Directions Education […]

A blog from Burge – Day three is here… #menofharlech


Day two hit really hard. It started exceptionally high with a tremendous launch in Aberystwyth from Ysgol Penweddig. The PE team and school staff were brilliant at getting our spirits focused for the task ahead. With around 65 miles facing us and over 4,000 feet of climbs this part of the route was certainly not for the faint hearted. Blistered, battered but utterly brave my fantastic team mates showed strength of character that quite frankly rivalled the recent Welsh international football team. It really brings it home to me out on the road the support we all give each other not just today, […]

Burge’s Blog – Day Two… #MenofHarlech

A bit of breakfast to set us on our way...

So we made it…to Aberystwyth. As we cycled into the town in the glorious sunshine we couldn’t have been more relieved to rest our weary legs and take in a very very cold drink. The journey from Harlech afforded us some amazing views, and after being sent on our way so very enthusiastically by Ysgol Tan Y Castell - we had hope in our hearts and the best wishes of the school behind us. The roads were exceptionally kind to us, as was the weather. We stuck together as a team and urged one another on as the hills rose high. The camaraderie and all round banter has been outstanding. Cycling […]
