George Mullins sings the praises of the Whitgift SchoolSir David Attenborough O. M said about the Whitgift School:
"You have an astonishing school. I have never seen anything like it. Perhaps you know this, perhaps you don't, but take it from me, you have an amazing school."
When golfer, George Mullins, arrived to start at the Whitgift School, there was no doubt that he was extremely sporty, making this school the perfect choice for him. Playing football for Charlton Athletic F.C., from the age of eight, George's main challenge at Whitgift was learning not to over-do it at sports.
From eleven years of age, for his first four years at Whitgift, he played A-team golf, football, tennis, rugby and hockey. But by the time George was fifteen, the school that he refers to as, "the best school in the country," could see that this exceptionally talented pupil's academic work was suffering.
So the decision was made for George to focus only on golf, which had always been his top priority, and football. Then he had to play catch-up on his school work, but as George said, "The teachers are so great, they helped me get back up to date and keep on top of things."
George's summary about Whitgift School says it all:
"The opportunity the school provides you is exceptional, they offer excellence in every department, sports/academics/music/languages, the list goes on and on. The work ethic is amazing and there's such a positive vibe around the school."
Who wouldn't want to have school memories like those?
Featured in Tatler in 2017
"A fabulous school where exciting things happen all the time," were the words of the Whitgiftian Tatler researcher, who was delighted to have the opportunity to re-visit his old school.
Set in a beautiful parkland, with free-range peacocks, in South Croydon, Whitgift was founded back in 1600. This outstanding school is proud to state that the Whitgiftians come from diverse backgrounds, but have one main trait in common, a "can-do" attitude. Headmaster, Chris Ramsey, describes his students as follows:
"Above all, Whitgift boys are articulate, confident without being boastful, and outstandingly good company. Please do come and see us, and meet some of them for yourself."
You only have to look at the school's Twitter feed to be impressed with the amount and range of talents the staff are nurturing. On the school's website news section, you can see George featured alongside other golfers from the school.
George's sponsor's son will also become a Whitgiftian
Soon the son of George's sponsor, the Managing Director here at Towers & Sanders, will become a Whitgiftian. Watch this space to see what talents he will hone at Whitgift, the best school in Great Britain, in George Mullins' opinion.
