Dartington in Conisbrough 1972-1975


5.0 average, based on 1 reviews

Product Information

Dartington, in rural Devon was the home of Dartington Hall School, famous for its freedom and progressive approach. Conisbrough was a mining village in Yorkshire, home to Northcliffe Comprehensive School. Royston Lambert and Arthur Young, the heads of the two schools, planned an exchange scheme, so that their students should benefit from the experience of contrasting education, organisation and ethos. Pat Kitto and her husband Dick were appointed as wardens in Conisbrough. In this book she tells of their experiences there.

The school-leaving age was raised from fifteen to sixteen in 1973, and the Kittos found themselves closely involved with a selected group of fifteen boys whose disgust at the idea of an extra year of school was particulary strong. The amazing success of this scheme is relevant in 2010, when the leaving age is to be raised again soon.
