Mrs Charlotte Taylor-Smith is Housemistress to School House and also the School Librarian and Boarding Co-ordinator. She is supported by Miss Kelly Malan as Deputy Housemistress. The Day Housemistress, Mrs Chris Hayes, looks after the girls during the day when the Housemistresses have teaching commitments. In the evenings, House Tutors help in the House; these teachers include Mrs Amanda Kingsland, Mrs Sharon Durant, Mr Chris Totney, Mrs Kimberley Pallot and Mrs Susan Avis. We also are lucky to have a Gap Student, Miss Zahn Scholtz, assisting in the House.
Beth, our lovely black labrador, also plays an important pastoral role, providing cuddles as well as hoovering services!
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.
