(Photograph) - Saffron Burrows, who stars in the film 'Enigma' released today, attacks the Government's obsession with academic results and inspection in this week's TES.
She is a governor at her brother's school, Islington Arts and Media College, where her stepfather, Richard Rieser, is chair of the governing body. The once-failing TV secondary is now heading for the most-improved list.
The actress dubbed the fixation with exam performance as "very depressing"and said it was despicable that privately-educated pupils were told that they were the cream of the country.
