Far too many able young people substantially underachieve, particularly those from less advantaged backgrounds, creating a major block to improving social mobility in the UK. We are a national leader in tackling this problem - our transformational programmes inspire success.
What's going on at Villiers Park?
This week we have students at our Cambridge Centre for a transformational week residential on 'French: Language and Identity'. They will look at French theatre, poetry, newspapers and politics, have a talk on Linguistics by Bert Vaux from the University of Cambridge, and visit the Impressionist Gallery at the Fitzwilliam Museum.
As the country marks the centenary of the First World War we felt it appropriate to share a few stories with you, month by month, from September 1914 to 1918 and commemorate the men from Eton Manor Boys' Club, from which we originate, that fought in the war and served their country.
