There I am just peacefully reading the BBC news....

...when all of a sudden I come across my old headteacher!

Baccalaureate schools 'to treble'

It was almost inevitable that he'd be mentioned on there somewhere, but I didn't know he was the chairman now!

I never did the IB at school, having to do the English and a language really put me off.* Emily did though, and that extended essay that he talks about got her an extra point as hers was so good!

Oooohhh.....there's a link to the school site on there too.

BTW, the picture at the top of the BBC article isn't one taken at the Anglo. The giveaway is the girl in the white shirt, as you'll see from the school site, the Anglo uniform involves yellow shirts....making Anglo pupils very easy to spot.

*You have to do Native Language (English usually), Foreign Language, Maths, a Science subject, a Humanities subject (History, Geography, RE) and then another choice of your own (that fits in with the timetable). Timetabling in 6th form was always geared around the IB students. Three are taken at Higher, three at lower, and then you have your Extended Essay to do....

Okay, 3rd time lucky! I've tried to post to this twice before and it hasn't worked, sooo...
Kate - noticed a wedding date at the top of your profile bit - very excited for you both!!! Two of the most excellent people I know (even if I do sound like a bad Bill & Ted movie saying that)
Secondly - Awwww! Kittens are gorgeous.
My apologies btw if I said or did anything to offend anyone on Tuesday at the moot, I was in my own little world called 'beerland' and completely oblivious to everything.
