We are delighted to welcome Gina Malin who will join the Advisory Board at Wetherby-Pembridge as the new term starts this Fall and brings a wealth of experience to the role. Serving as the Executive Director of the Parents League of New York for the last five years, Gina oversaw both strategy and operations, whilst leading as the key spokesperson for the revered organisation. We know that many of our current and visiting school families know Gina very well and we are looking forward to working alongside her over the following months.
As Founding Head of School, I am honoured to welcome Gina as she is a highly respected household name amongst New York families and City educators alike. Gina’s invaluable knowledge and experience will undoubtedly add further strength to plans for the School’s development. We pride ourselves on our rigorous academics, individualized instruction and Wetherby-Pembridge is a family school with a dedicated faculty and parent community.
Gina looks forward to joining the Board and says: “Children and education have always been an important part of my professional life, and Wetherby-Pembridge’s approach understands that we can bring out the best in every child if we take the time to seek what makes them unique and cater to those strengths. As important and impressive the academic rigor taught in Wetherby- Pembridge is, there are also unique opportunities for personal developmental growth and confidence seen in the children’s immersive learning experiences and the plethora of extracurricular activities.”
As a member of the Advisory Board, Gina will be responsible for overseeing the educational provision, leadership, and efficient running of Wetherby-Pembridge. Gina will work with her fellow board members to safeguard the school’s community, promote its curriculum, and elevate its profile within the local district. Fellow board members include Sir John Ritblat (Chairman), Graham Able (Deputy Chairman), Natasha Boucai, George Davison (Head of School, Grace Church School, New York), Dr. Paul Beresford-Hill (Ambassador and Permanent Observer at the Sovereign Order of Malta to the United Nations and Director General at Mountbatten Institute) and Luke Parker Bowles (Chief Executive at Cinema Lab and Film Director).
