An environmental ethos is essential to preserving the planet for tomorrow’s adults – whether it’s learning about food production, water efficiency or renewable energy. In the latest issue we take a closer look at how schools plant the seeds of sustainability from page 14.

I’m also pleased to welcome our new columnist Helen Fraser, CEO of The Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST). In her first article for IE Today, Helen writes about how sustainability is more than just a buzzword in GDST schools – see page 10.

It was great to see some of you at the Boarding Schools’ Association’s recent conference for deputy heads and heads of boarding, where we got a glimpse of the current boarding world. It’s the association’s Golden Jubilee year and there’s lots going on to celebrate, so do take a look at the BSA website to see where you can get involved. You can read more about the event on page 40.

In the education sector, time is precious – so what if all your CPD was in one place? This year’s Education Show, at the NEC Birmingham from 17-19 March, promises to have something for everyone – find out more on page 38.
