Mrs Fiona Muir is Housemistress to School House and is herself a former Calne Girl! She is supported by Miss Helen Turley as Deputy Housemistress and Mrs Chris Hayes (Day Housemistress). In addition to being Housemistress of School House, Mrs Muir teaches English. She lives in School House with her husband and three young daughters. She has a BA and MA from the University of London and a PGCE from the University of Oxford.
In the evenings, House Tutors help in the House; these teachers include Miss Clare Bloomer, Miss Louise Cavanagh, Mr Stephen Douglas, Ms Florence Lehmann, Miss Beatriz Sanchez and Mr Duncan Ellis.
School House is home to St Mary’s LIV Form (Year 7). The girls sleep in dormitories of between three and six girls. The day girls are well integrated into the House and they have futons within the dorms. This enables them to stay overnight on occasions. Day Girls are always invited to sleep over on the first day of term and also the first Saturday night of the year if they wish.
Beth and Daisy, Mrs Hayes’ lovely black labradors, also play an important pastoral role, providing cuddles as well as hoovering services!
