Sixth Form Colleges Association announces new Chair

The Sixth Form Colleges Association is delighted to announce that Nick Burnham, Principal of Cardinal Newman College in Preston, has been elected as its new Chair. He takes over the reins from Eddie Playfair, Principal of Newham Sixth Form College after a successful three year term. Nick will Chair the SFCA Council that supports and guides the work of the Association. Governors and Principals from all seven SFCA regions and the Roman Catholic colleges are represented on the SFCA Council.

…And then there were 10

Agatha Christie’s macabre tale of ‘Ten Little Soldiers’ aside, ‘…and then there were 10’ is an appropriate description for the S7 group of Sixth Form Colleges located in Surrey and Sussex.  Sally Bromley, current Chair of S7 and Principal of The College of Richard Collyer in Horsham, agrees with last week’s article in TES Further by Bill Watkin, CEO of the SFCA.
