Schools from around the UK converged at the Donnington Valley Hotel in Berkshire this week, for another Engage Development Partner Meeting.

For several years, Independent Schools have been keen to be a part of the programme, sharing in the development of the Engage software while providing invaluable feedback to the Development Team.

Many familiar faces were present, whilst other schools were attending for the first time. “This is the first of many Development meetings I’ve attended,” said Richard White, Bursar at Prince’s Mead School. “It’s made me realise the power of the software which has been improved massively.”

It was a first visit too for Sean Cooke, Bursar at St Mary’s School in Colchester, who said he was looking forward to more of these meetings in the future. “This is the perfect environment to step back and share ideas with other schools. They are very, very useful.”

After lunch had been served in the Winepress Room, a demonstration of the new Portal was provided by Paul Rastall, Business Analyst.
