PRIVATE 56 | School

Good news, it infuses this issue with a sense of joy, and with an aspect of carefree childhood seized in flight. There is a feeling of solemnity, but a tender solemnity. An innocence that confronts the world, its difficulties and the trials of study, but it is amusing, happy, and touching.

Alys Tomlinson | The College on the Hill

Just off a small roundabout in the middle of the English countryside lies New College Worcester. At first glance, it is a regular secondary school and sixth form, set in pleasant, open grounds. It’s only when you look a little more closely that you see signs indicating that this is not a ‘normal’ school.
