The Week Ahead 

 Saturday, 2nd July to Saturday, 3rd September

It is not every day in the school year that you walk into the Dining Room, Library or House social areas and the main topics of discussion are trade deals and tax, open borders, freedom of movement and seismic upheaval in political parties. But Brexit – and its ramifications – has indeed been the key talking point at Wellington this last week. Whatever our individual feelings about the result, it is good to see students so engaged in sensible and intense political discourse. It has confirmed my belief that a Wellington education must ensure our pupils keep a truly global perspective and remain informedly abreast of current affairs: after all, the best learning, both in and out of the classroom is when hearts and minds are inspired by things that really matter and which lead to passionate and far-reaching exploration.

It seems extraordinary that the school year is already coming to an end: as ever at Wellington it has been a roller coaster ride of discovery, deep learning and astonishing endeavour. For me it has been a chance to get to know the place properly, and I am increasingly aware of the vast potential of both school and students, a potential I am determined to nurture and nourish. I truly believe we are blessed with the most talented and committed youngsters here, and I also know that so much of what they achieve would not be possible without the astonishing commitment of our wonderful staff, who always seem willing to go above and beyond the call of duty: I now think of them as the ABCD crew!

Wellington has been so well represented by this year’s Upper Sixth Formers. Their final Chapel Service and Graduation Ceremonies were both moving and inspirational and it was clear how much their time at Wellington had meant to them, and how much they had achieved, both as individuals and as a year group. I wish them the best of all fortune as they begin their new lives in the adult world. For the rest of the school it is now time for the holidays and a chance for rest and relaxation – but also a time to reflect on the past and to plan for the future, and always to remember that together we are Wellington.

I am already looking forward to seeing them again in September, but for now I hope you all have a wonderful summer.
