Simon Balderson, Assistant Head (digital strategy)
I love how Wells has a wonderful blend of academic rigour, musical excellence and sporting achievement in a very happy and friendly environment.
Being in charge of the Digital Strategy for the school brings incredible variety to my job as it applies to just about everything that happens here. On any given day I could be discussing our PSHE programme, investigating how IT can help us teach and learn more effectively, writing code, flying the quadcopter around the site, or a huge range of other things, which means life is never dull!
Before coming to Wells, I had a number of different roles across various schools, including being a boarding Housemaster and Network Manager, alongside teaching Philosophy and Computing. I feel very lucky to have had such a variety of roles and experiences.
At Wells, I also run the Debating Society and the Triathlon Club. I try to go out running with the Cross Country club whenever I can, and I enjoy doing the triathlon in my spare time.
