The Head of Wadhurst is Mr Greg Caldwell, who commenced in this position in 2007. Mr Caldwell has extensive experience in educating young people, having been Head of Sandringham House, the Junior School of Firbank Grammar, and Head of the Middle School at Brighton Grammar School.
As well as earlier tertiary qualifications he holds a Master of Education from the University of Melbourne, specialising in the transition of students from primary to secondary education.
Mr Caldwell has three daughters and family is the focus of his activities away from school. He enjoys watching all types of sport and cultural events and lists cycling, walking, listening to music and travelling as favourite pastimes.

"The years between 11 and 14 are not just the middle years of schooling but are central to building a strong sense of personal identity. At Wadhurst we help adolescent boys acquire life skills that equip them to operate successfully in the world beyond their families and close community. Our School caters for the overall wellbeing of students while continuing to engage them actively in learning.
Wadhurst is a personal, self-contained environment with broad educational and co-curricular programmes designed to help our young people through what can be a complex physical, social, emotional and intellectual development stage.
Thanks to the generous efforts of many in the Melbourne Grammar community we have access to magnificent buildings and facilities. New initiatives in curriculum and pastoral care are energising our students to develop their talents in a safe and stimulating environment.
Our experienced staff, both male and female teachers, have a deep understanding of young adolescents and work in partnership with them and their parents.
You are warmly invited to tour Wadhurst and see our Year 7 and 8 learning community in action."
- Greg Caldwell, Head of Wadhurst
