CBE for Independent Schools Council chairman

Congratulations to Barnaby Lenon, chairman of the Independent Schools Council, who has been awarded a CBE in the Queen’s birthday honours list for services to education.  Barnaby has done much work for the independent schools sector, helping raise awareness of the important role the sector plays in our country’s diverse education system, such as through meaningful partnerships with state schools.  Barnaby is also chair of governors at the London Academy of Excellence in Newham, which in a short time has become one of the most successful state schools in England.
