The Wellington Family are the only group who offer boarding across the entire range of sectors; independent, state, prep and international. Tom Hicks, Head of Group Boarding at Wellington College arranged the first ever, three day conference towards the end of February, bringing together the heads of boarding, and deputy heads across the sectors. It was quite a challenge to organise, as he had to co-ordinate bringing over the staff from Wellington International Shanghai and Wellington International Tianjan, however he achieved it, and put together a magnificent program of events over the three days.
The conference included a day at the Wellington Academy with a visit to Wellington Primary Academy, a full day at Wellington College and Eagle House. It was a superb opportunity for all members of staff to share good practice and many ‘Golden Nuggets’ were shared, with the view of striving to raise standards across all sectors.
