Deputy Head (Safeguarding) - Wellington College

Delyth has been on the Senior Leadership Team at Wellington College for 11 years. She has enjoyed a long career in independent education and previous posts have included Deputy Head (Pastoral), Housemistress and Director of Extra-Curricular activities.

In 2018 she was awarded the Boarding Schools Association Research Fellowship; Delyth conducted her research on ‘Abuse in Boarding Schools’, probing into an area where there was little research or literature available. Her paper won the National Research Award (2019) and was cited by IICSA in their inquiry into abuse in residential settings. Her innovative work in the area of pastoral education for parents saw her winning the TES ‘Boarding Initiative of the Year’ award (2016) and in 2020, Delyth’s creativity and ingenuity in masterminding the inaugural Wellington College ‘Community Mental Health Day’ was recognised by the BSA presenting the College with the ‘Wellbeing and Mental Health Initiative of the Year’ award.

Delyth is Vice Chair of Governors at a local school and leads the Local Independent Schools DSL cluster group. Delyth has a particular passion and interest in the part that organisational values play in safeguarding and is considered to be one of the most respected and experienced designated safeguarding leads in the UK.

In her spare time she enjoys watching Ocotnauts with her daughter and long distance running.
