For over twenty years Roger Griffiths was Headmaster at Hurstpierpoint College, West Sussex. During this time he saw a great deal of change to the education system in general and the independent sector in particular. In his new book A Life At The Chalk Face he discusses the events which shaped his life and career and which led to a dedication to education throughout his working life.

Following his years at Hurstpierpoint he continued his career with 10 years as Assistant Secretary of the Headmasters Conference. It is in this latter role that he formed strong views of the independent education sector. Views which are forcefully expressed in this book. With recent proposals to change the subject base of secondary education together with the A level fiasco of last summer and the growth in litigation towards schools and education authorities, are we really providing a good standard of education for the generations of the 21st Century?
