Housemaster, Wellington College
Ed Venables is a housemaster at Wellington College. He teaches Economics and Business having worked previously in a hedge fund in London. Ed’s project with Carwarden House School has been going for three years and this year won the TES Independent school award for ‘best independent-maintained school collaboration’. The ever-building relationship with Carwarden House came from a desire for the boys in the house to be able to give of their time regularly to get to know and have fun with students who they could relate to (they are of a similar age) but who they would never ordinarily meet.
