Welcome to 'Tea with the Head'!

In our podcast „Tea with the Head“​, we invite headmasters and headmistresses of renowned British boarding schools for a chat over tea. We talk about the schools in particular, eduation in general, the heads' personal interests and anything else that could be interesting.
The conversations are exclusively in English.

Ferdinand and Antonia talk to Joss Buchanan, the affable headmaster of King William's College on the Isle of Man. King William's College is the only boarding school in Great Britain that is currently able to run a normal school, as covid-19 has been eradicated from the Isle of Man. Joss talks with great wit and lucid anecdotes about life at College.
8. Episode -- Alastair Tighe // Wells Cathedral School // January 2021 --
Ferdinand and Antonia talk to the lovely Alastair Tighe, headmaster of Wells Cathedral School in Somerset. Wells Cathedral is first and foremost known for its amazing music offer. However, Alastair convinced us that the school has so, so much more to offer than music! Please excuse the slightly suboptimal sound quality of this episode!
7. Episode -- Irfan Latif // DLD College London // December 2020 --
Ferdinand and Antonia talk to the affable Irfan Latif about his school, a school that sits in the heart of London. This makes DLD College very, very different from more classic boarding schools in England, of course, yet offers a uniquely exciting array of academic and extracurricular possibilities.
