I went to Sherborne yesterday and Bright World was being celebrated by the Registrar and the office staff as being the most efficient guardianship company that they deal with. Furthermore Simon, your name was mentioned in particular as a person who is always one step ahead. It seems that the school has to really chase other guardianship companies for basic information.
