Society of Merchant Venturers 'not fit' to run Bristol schools says former headteacher

The Society of Merchant Venturers is ‘not fit’ to run schools in Bristol - according to a man who was the headteacher at one of their most prominent schools until last year.
John Whitehead, who was the principal at Colston’s Girls’ School for three years until the summer of 2019, questioned the very presence of the organisation’s deep involvement in education in Bristol.
