Education prompts much parental agonising, as Clarissa, former high mistress of St Paul’s Girls’ School, and Tony, head master of Eton from 2002-2015, know. In The Making of Her: Why School Matters Clarissa examines what contributes to the success of women and how we can inspire confidence and nurture excellence in children. In Adolescence: How to Survive It Tony and co-author Herb Etkin offer a guide for parents, teachers and young adults on coping with those fraught years. Lessons from two top educators. Interviewed by Gerry Foley.
