Daily Echo: Councillors invited to hold meeting at historic school Councillors invited to hold meeting at historic school

WINCHESTER College has invited city councillors to hold a meeting at the historic school.

The invitation, thought to be unprecedented, was extended by member of staff Michael Wallis at the town forum.

Mr Wallis was giving a presentation about the college’s work to city councillors.

He said the invitation came from head teacher Ralph Townsend and chairman of governors Sir David Clementi, who are keen to forge links with the wider community.

Cllr Chris Pines described the invitation as “brilliant”, adding: “I have watched the college for the last 50 years and how it has changed in attitude.

"The college used to think Winchester was a small town on the edge of a school. It is nice to see its change in approach and change in vision.”
