Centre for Character & Leadership

The Centre for Character & Leadership complements the work of our Centre for Wellbeing & Positive Education.

Understanding how character impacts on our capacity to live a fulfilling and meaningful life underpins everything we do. The Centre for Character & Leadership enhances our academic programme and provides opportunities for students and staff alike to aspire to achieve at their best. By promoting good character and developing leadership programmes across all aspects of College life, we prepare our students to take their place in and make a positive difference to their community.

Director of Boarding and the Centre for Character & Leadership Darrell Thatcher has developed a range of character and leadership programmes for both dayboys and boarders, which will expand and build on present activities.
