Junior School Headmaster receives MBE from Prince William


Junior School Headmaster Tim Wheeler and his family had a great day as he collected his MBE for services to charity and to education from Prince William in the Buckingham Palace Ballroom.

During the presentation, The Duke of Cambridge spoke to Mr Wheeler about the work of The Little Princess Trust and his role in fundraising for the charity.

Mr Wheeler said: “It is both a great honour and a very humbling experience to think that other people consider your contribution to the world to be worthy of recognition.

“I have always considered it a great privilege to be involved in education and to play a part, however small, in shaping the lives of children. It has also been a privilege to be able to contribute to the work of an amazing charity, the Little Princess Trust, which not only impacts directly on the lives of children now but is also rapidly developing its research programme in an attempt to find kinder treatments for the future.”
