Upper Prep Housemaster – Victoria Doamekpor

Senior Housemaster – Danielle Hawkins

The house is named after Edward Stanley, 14th Earl of Derby.

He was head of a rich and powerful family known as the ‘Kings of Lancashire’. He was Prime Minister for three different periods, one of which coincided with the planning and foundation of Wellington College as a national memorial to the great Duke. He did much of the detailed work involved, was appointed at first as Vice-President and then President on the death of the Prince Consort, and made a speech at the opening of the college in 1859. The family maintained a close association with the Wellington College in the UK.
