Recently, I was blessed to visit Summerhill Academy in St Paul’s, Bristol. I received an email a couple of months ago from the teacher of their Year 6 class, telling how he’d set the class the task of researching certain ‘inspirational figures’; me included. We shared a few letters between the students and myself, and I was very lucky to end up visiting the school during their last week of term, before I left.

Local Inspiration Board Summerhill

The kids there were inspiring themselves, wide-eyed and enthusiastic individuals; they had so many questions, and it was a joy to answer every one of them. They had big dreams, and in a world that often tells people to let go of your dreams and stay realistic, I couldn’t help but applaud their enthusiasm. The kids were not only enthusiastic, but intelligent and ambitious; the future is bright.
