Greetings from the UK! This week I have been based in Shrewsbury School, the institution from which our world-class Shrewsbury education began over 450 years ago.
What a privilege it has been to work alongside Ben Keeling (Principal at Shrewsbury Hong Kong), interviewing outstanding candidates for both of our growing schools. It is very exciting to be expanding our teaching teams with such a great choice of high-calibre motivated professionals.
Alongside this we have had the opportunity to meet with Leo Winkley, the Headmaster of Shrewsbury School, and members of his senior leadership team and Governing body.
In addition, Carlien Shelley and Rachel Qiu from Shrewsbury Huangpu (opening in August 2021) were also visiting the UK and getting to meet the wider Shrewsbury family of school leaders.
This connectivity and working together to provide an outstanding British education with a shared clear vision for the future is a unique and exciting position to be in.
I can't be in England and not talk about the weather…..all I can say is it has been very cold, and very very very wet (with one morning of sunshine which we managed to capture below)!
I’m looking forward to returning to the Bangkok sunshine early next week in time for our vibrant and colourful Chinese New Year celebrations.
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
