Stanley

The Stanley enjoys huge success across academic, sporting and cultural pursuits and prides itself on its House spirit, as well as the easy and friendly relations between the different year-groups.

The HM

Charlie Sutton joined Wellington in September 2018 from Pangbourne College where he was a Housemaster, Head of Boarding and a member of Senior Leadership Team.

Previous to this role he was Head of Physical Education and Rugby at Pangbourne and his remit included coaching the 1st XV and 1st VII rugby teams the 1st XI cricket team and providing assistance for those wishing to pursue a career in sport. Before Pangbourne, Charlie was Head of Cricket at Ryde School on the Isle of Wight.

Charlie was educated at St Edward’s School Oxford and studied Sports Science at Durham University, playing rugby and cricket for them, before embarking on his PGCE in PE at Exeter University. He has also played Minor Counties cricket for Oxfordshire. As well as his love of sport, Charlie has a passion for music which was honed during his six years of being a Chorister at Christ Church Cathedral School. He has an appreciation for the CCF, having passed his initial RCB briefing for Sandhurst but decided to take a different career path. Charlie also enjoys long walks, travelling, reading and socialising with friends and family.

He is joined by his wife, Laura (currently on maternity leave) who was Head of Psychology at Pangbourne and a former Head of Science at Ryde High School, and their son, Freddie (2) along with Bubba and Moo, their two cats.

The House

The Stanley is one of Wellington’s ‘out-college’ boys Houses but is superbly located in the College campus, close to all academic departments and yet slightly removed from the main College. The Stanley has its own grounds as well as a floodlit all-weather court and a well-equipped games room in the garden. The House also has its own dining room, in which boys eat breakfast and dinner — it is a very special feature. The Stanley is home to around 60 boys living over three floors. The Third Form share rooms of four at the top of the House, in ‘heaven’. The Fourth and Fifth form live in single rooms on the second floor, in ‘main passage’, and the ground floor, or ‘hell’, houses the senior boys whose rooms are not with the other year-groups around the House. The whole House was refurbished over the summer of 2016. The Stanley enjoys huge success across academic, sporting and cultural pursuits and prides itself on its House spirit, as well as the easy and friendly relations between the different year-groups. The aim of all of the House staff is to provide the boys a safe home to allow them to flourish at Wellington and to discover their full potential for life after Wellington.
