Best Head of a Prep School 2016

15 Sep 2016

It was with great pleasure that, in whole school assembly, I was able to present our Headmaster, Mr Welch, with the trophy awarded to him as Tatler ‘Best Head of a Prep School 2016’

Mr Welch’s outstanding achievement was recently announced at the annual School Awards at the Landmark Hotel in London. Tatler publishes its Schools Guide about the top Prep and Public Schools in the UK on an annual basis, and provides information based on visits to the schools, and conversations with pupils, parents and a wide variety of people associated with education, including fellow Prep and Senior School Heads.

Mr Welch was quick to point out that this commendation reflects the tremendous efforts and commitment made by the whole Witham Hall community – Governors, staff, parents and pupils – and would like us all to enjoy the achievement accordingly. On receiving the award, the Headmaster also paid tribute to the outstanding part played by Mrs Welch in the success of the school.
