These can be anything you like. Great restaurants in Figeac, places to get your car fixed in Scarborough, the local pony club, the Milton Keynes Young Conservatives, a nice pub in Sussex..whatever. This can then be a source of interesting stuff and places.

Minchenden Famous for English Language Tuition.

Check out http://www.remakingenglish.org/ the new website for Social Change and English, 1945-1965. This describes a three-year project is funded by the Leverhulme Trust.  The aim of the project is to produce a history of developments in the teaching of English in three London secondary schools in the twenty years after the war. These English departments were chosen because they influenced the way English developed, not only in the UK, but in the Commonwealth, the USA and beyond.  One of the three is Minchenden

The research methods involve interviews with teachers and pupils together with the study of documents, photographs and films (including student work). Thet immediate aim is to record people’s memories while there is still time, and make these available. Basically before we all die !!!

This website contains information about the schools in our study, the project team and the advisory board as well as publishing interim findings.
