Wetherby Senior sixth formers have been given an engaging insight on the management of our School’s Marylebone Village home.
Our A Level Geography cohort were visited by Mark Kildea, CEO of the Howard de Walden Estate, and his colleague, Luke Mosson, the organisation’s town planner, this week. Both outlined their own career path and role with the Howard de Walden Estate, before talking about the history and success of the organisation, which now manages one of London’s most desirable areas.
Our sixth formers asked our visitors a number of questions, meaning the subsequent discussion looked at topics like the branding of Marylebone Village, different planning decisions by the Howard de Walden Estate, the sustainability issues that face Marylebone, and the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Mrs Deedat, Head of our Sixth Form, said: “This was a wonderful opportunity for our young geographers to learn how the Howard de Walden Estate works to maintain this lovely part of London that Wetherby Senior calls home. Our sixth formers also asked excellent questions which helped to further expand understanding of issues previously been discussed in class, such as town planning and sustainability.
“We’re very grateful to Mark and Luke for taking the time to speak to our boys, for answering their questions so thoughtfully, and for providing such a marvellous insight into the work and role of the Howard de Walden Estate.”
The Howard de Walden Estate is responsible for overseeing a diverse community of residents, educational institutions, and businesses, including Marylebone Village’s retail and leisure offering and the world class healthcare providers of Harley Street Medical Area, in the Marylebone area.
