The Head of Boarding has overall pastoral responsibility for the house, making sure the catering, cleaning and all the behind-the-scenes works are progressing as they should, and also provides the link to parents and teachers. He is assisted by a girls’ houseparent, and a boys’ and girls’ matron. We also have an assistant Matron and Patron.
There are usually up to four residential boarding assistants, who are recent school graduates from all over the world, who stay with us for between a term and a year. Typically keen sports people, they help in the day-to-day running of the house and activities.
