I hadn’t been there for decades. Yet, when greeting Andy Drenters at the door of the Rockwood Academy, I said: “This is one of my favourite places in the world.”  On a beautiful day in May it was delightful to see how little things had changed

Rarely if ever in my life has there been a place like the Rockwood Academy that has brought together the personal and the professional.
