Signs of Learning?

Visiting Cambridge for meetings today and the first impressive sight outside the railway station is just always thousands of bicycles as students leave them there whilst they go away. Few, if any other cities in the UK are so synonymous with the sight of lots of bicycles and students cycling everywhere. Students imply learning (amongst other things!). Cambridge implies very bright students and academia.

Wouldn't it be great if our school students could develop a reputation or ethos of ongoing study and learning in their communities, no matter where they live, and then the community reflect somehow that learning agenda.e I'm not sure how we convincingly do that right now though, but lots of communities each with a demonstrable culture of learning would just be so great!
