Whitgift's former Headmaster, Dr Barnett, receives Tatler Schools Award.
Whitgift’s former Headmaster, Dr Christopher Barnett, was commended in the 14th annual Tatler Schools Awards 2017, as one of two recipients to receive the publication’s School Legend Award. Dr Barnett was presented his award at the Landmark London Hotel, in September this year, in recognition of his ‘lifetime achievements’, including becoming the longest-serving Head of an HMC school. Upon giving the award, Tatler’s School Guide editor-at-large, Alice Rose, described Whitgift as a ‘phenomenal school’. Over the past 26 years, it has become a school that not only offers an all-round education, without limits to aspiration, but also prides itself on the beauty and inspiration provided in the learning environment.
Whitgift School features very positively in The Tatler Schools Guide 2017, with their researcher reporting, “a fabulous school where exciting things happen all the time”.
