New Headmaster Appointed

St Philip's school















Mr Alexander Wulffen Thomas

We are delighted to announce that, following a rigorous selection process, the Board of Governors was unanimous in its decision to appoint Mr Alexander Wulffen Thomas as Headmaster to succeed Harry Biggs-Davison, who retires at the end of the Michaelmas Term.

Alexander Wulffen Thomas, 36, who is presently Deputy Head at Westminster Cathedral Choir School, will take up the appointment on 1st January 2016. He was educated at Stonyhurst College and Durham University where he read Russian. He worked for a specialist risk consultancy before joining WCCS in 2010.

Before Alexander Wulffen Thomas takes up the appointment next January, there will be opportunities for parents and boys to meet and welcome him to the school.

Christmas Boxes for the Philippines

Before Christmas last year, pupils at St Philip's made Christmas Boxes for children affected by the typhoon. On Valentine's Day this year, the children received the boxes, thanks to the efforts of some St Philip's parents, their familes and friends. Click here to watch the video they made when delivering the boxes.
