What The Good Schools Guide says

Head of Prep

Since September 2020, Vics Richardson. Previously head of lower school. First started at Wellington in 1998 as a maths teacher. Has coached many sports, sung in chapel choir, been involved in gold DofE as well as CCF. Enjoys skiing and loyally supports whichever team her sons are playing in.
