Why the name Morris Eduction Trust?

Henry Morris was the Chief Education Officer for Cambridgeshire from the 1920s up to the 1950s. It was his memorandum written in 1925 that laid the foundation for the village colleges, with the first established at Sawston in 1930. In this piece, Morris writes that ‘The village college could lie athwart the daily lives of the community it served; and in it the conditions would be realised under which education would not be an escape from reality, but an enrichment and transformation of it. For education is committed to the view that the ideal order and the actual order can ultimately be made one’. We believe the new Trust will seek to do the same – enrich and transform the lives of students and pupils who come to the schools.
