The Society of Heads

The Society of Heads is a welcoming community of independent schools that want to share ideas and experiences. The main purpose is to help provide appropriate curriculums that foster key attributes in students. What makes this society progressive? The combination of traditional qualities and modern educational theory is the foundation upon which this society is led. At Ruthin, it is our duty to prepare students for whatever they may face in life and this sense of duty is shared by The Society of Heads and its members.
