The Wigley Group Employs Six OPs And Has 50 Years Of History With Princethorpe

The Wigley Group has strong connections with the College.

Warwickshire property company The Wigley Group is celebrating more than 50 years of history with Princethorpe College – and continues to be a proud supporter today!

The family-run firm has more than 30 staff based at its Stockton House headquarters on Rugby Road, including six Old Princethorpians currently working at the company.

Chairman Robert Wigley was the first to attend the College, starting in 1972, with Group Communications Manager Katie Wigley the last to attend as she left in the summer of 2011.

Other College alumni include Chief Executive Officer James Davies, Chief Operating Officer James Ellerington, Property Assistant Jonathan Wigley, and Construction Manager Andrew Higham.

The company retains close links with the College today, sponsoring the Two-Day Equestrian event which takes place in May, and will also be hosting a stall and careers workshops at the Princethorpe Careers Fair on Saturday 18 March.

James Davies, who currently sits on the Old Princethorpians committee, said: “Having so many alumni from the same college is quite unusual, but we all have such fond memories of our time at Princethorpe.

“I know our team are looking forward to meeting students and telling them about the exciting opportunities we have here – such as our successful Apprenticeships, Graduate Scheme, and work experience placements – at the upcoming Careers Fair.”

The Wigley Group operates in property, development, and construction.
