New Principal of Atlantic College

It was a very emotional moment for both the Staff and Neil Richards, when the result of the selection process was announced in the new Staff-Common-Room. The overwhelmed Richards was welcomed with applause and beaming smiles.

“It was a very interesting and exciting experience“ said Baroness Helena Kennedy and emphasised the involvement of staff and students during the last days in the final interviews. Quoting a student Kennedy stated at the end of the day it was clear: “He is the man“. The crucial arguement for Richards was not only his international experience and background, but also that the governors had the impression Neil Richards would share the values of the UWC-movement and Atlantic College in particular.

“I hope to fulfil your expectations“ was Neil Richards spontaneous response to Helena Kennedy‘s speech.
