United World College, Atlantic College Wales
Opened in 1962 with Rear Admiral Desmond Hoare as Headmaster, the concept of Atlantic College was born during a lecture visit by Dr Kurt Hahn to the NATO Defense College in Paris in 1955, where he met British Commandant Air Marshal Sir Lawrance Darvall.
Atlantic College was designed to promote international understanding through education, to break down national barriers in education, particularly in the field of university admission, and to make education a force to unite nations. In 1968, Lord Mountbatten took up the new position as President of the international Council of the United World Colleges. Since then a further 15 colleges have opened across the globe.
Rear Admiral Hoare developed the first Rigid-Hulled Inflatable Boat (RIB) while headmaster at Atlantic College and ever since its students have been building and refining RIBs as part of their experiential education.
