"I am delighted to sit on the Advisory Board of Royal SpringBoard primarily because I believe passionately in the power of a boarding education to fully develop the talents of our young people, whatever their personal circumstances. It is through the great work of organisations such as Royal SpringBoard that aspirations can be raised, talent can be fulfilled and social mobility can improve. This benefits not just the young people directly involved, but also benefits their families, their communities and society at large."
