THE PRIVILEGES OF BEING HEAD OF SCHOOL

The honour of being chosen as Head of School at Sedbergh comes with much responsibility but also a few privileges. The Head of School has traditionally been allowed the grow a beard, keep a goat and ride a bicycle around school but it isn’t clear when these traditions began. The current Head of School, Tom Robinson, is keen to investigate whether there have been any other privileges with the post in the past and when these came in to being. If you remember what Heads’ of School were allowed to do during your time here or have any documents that record this the archivist Katy de la Rivière and Tom Robinson would be delighted to hear from you.
