Prep School Heads of English Conference at Elstree

On Friday Luke Owens, Head of English at Elstree, organised a Prep School Heads of English conference hosted in the Long Room at Elstree. 

We were delighted to welcome Dr Tim Hands, Headmaster at Winchester College, Richard Stillman, Head of English at Winchester College and Nick Wilks, Second Master at Winchester College who spoke about their philosophy of teaching English and what they aim to develop at Winchester. 

Sid Inglis then chaired a discussion about pre-testing, Common Entrance and scholarship, with plenty of lively debate and sharing of ideas. 

Following a delicious lunch, Harry Crump (Head of English from Radley College) gave a presentation about Radley’s English programme and common themes he sees in new boys arriving at the College.  Thank you to all those who attended. It was a terrific day discussing good practice and sharing of experiences.
