Our House Captains

Head of Stone:

I am Tate Sheppard. I have loved being part of a house that has such a high morale and positive attitude to all inter- house competitions. We make a great team that I am proud to now be head of and I look forward to collecting lots of trophies this year on your behalf. (No pressure !!) We cannot afford to have any improvement points so make your behaviour in all your lessons terrific and good marks will be coming our way. I am thrilled to be leading my house during my last year at Wellesley Haddon Dene.


Head of Joss – Felix Agnew 

I’m honoured and happy to accept the role of Head of Joss house.I appreciate all the teachers and children that believe in me.
I would like to thank the teachers who have played an important part of making me into the person I am today. The guidance, knowledge, and support has been amazing and I cannot thank you enough for the hours of patience you have put into teaching me.

To my friends and students, thank you for your support and for believing in me. I am thankful for the friendships we have made, the memories we have created and the experiences we have shared together such as boarding nights and school trips. I promise to work hard to represent everyone.

As Head of Joss, I am going to try my best to include everyone and make an environment where every student feels valued, respected, and happy. 
I want to improve not only physical well-being (everyone knows I love sports) but also mental well-being, encouraging all children to take part in activities, and providing a way for all children to explore their own talents in and out of the class.

Lastly, I will  work hard to make our school work more with the wider community better. I believe it is important to give back through community service tasks such as litter picking to keep our towns clean. By doing Fundraising events, and working with charities, we can make a difference and uphold the values that our school stands for: Respect, Forgiveness, resilience, kindness.
Starting back in September, I am both excited and honoured to be doing the role of Head of Joss. With everyone’s support and our brilliant school community, I believe we can achieve great things together. Let us take this adventure and grow, leaving a lasting legacy that will inspire future children of Wellesley Haddon Dene.
May we make Joss house proud!

Head of Stone – Conrad Baybars

I was so pleased to be selected to be Head of Stone House. As a House Captain I want everyone in Stone to know that I am here to support them if they need anything. I want them to feel pride in our house and in our school, and to know that if we work together and support each other we can achieve anything we set our minds to. Go Stone!

Head of Joss – Wilbur Henry

Head of Joss – Wilbur Henry When my name was read out in the Final Assembly a rush of joy and excitement bounced around in my body. The role fills me with pride and I cannot wait to start the next term. I believe this role is very important to the school community. I feel lucky to have the opportunity to inspire, enthuse and motivate pupils to engage in a range of activities. I know I will need to set an example not just for the younger pupils in my house but for all pupils across the school. In my role I want to lead Joss to win the House Cup (obviously!) and try to include as many people as possible in all competitions. I want to encourage everyone to get involved in the wide range of activities that the school offers. House Captain is an important position and gives me an opportunity to help build a better community. I have several ideas that I would like to explore including each house doing a beach clean up on their beach in Broadstairs. 

“Wellesley has given me so many opportunities – the drama, the sports, the activities, the music, the teachers – in fact, I love everything about Wellesley!”


“I love the art and drama – there are so many opportunities and the plays are always amazing fun!”


“Wellesley has given me confidence and independence in all that I do. It has given me the opportunity to meet new people, make new friends and explore new things that I would never be able to do at any other school.”
