2015 Debate testimonials:

"Firstly I wanted to say congratulations on a wonderful event last week. I thought it was excellent and we were over the moon to be associated with it." 
Leanne Dingle, Head of Community & Foundation, Harlequins RFC

"Once again, last night surpassed all expectations, in every respect. The organisational side was 'spot on' and the Reed's students were accomplished and charming; the welcome was warm indeed. The Debate was also illuminating and inspiring. I love sport, and was pleased that the joy of participation and physicality were key elements - not just government funding.  So, in terms of helping to define one's own vision - really useful. I hope that the impact will be felt far and wide, as all in a position to influence reflect on what they heard." 
Andrew Tulloch, Headteacher, St Andrews Primary School

"The contributions made by the guest speakers and the panel of experts were very impressive as was the film about the two foundation students. I am sure Andrew Reed would have been extremely proud of them. They were inspirational."
Steve Poole, Former Headteacher, Hinchley Wood Secondary School

"I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for organising the fabulous Debate and dinner last night.  Not only was it thought provoking but clearly also inspirational for all of those present. Your vision to so dynamically reaffirm the standards set by Andrew Reed 200 years ago is proof that the needs for social care and education are as real today as it was then."
