Meet our Head of House: Sarah

Early on in my career I was a netball and hockey coach and umpire, I worked in school PE departments and taught outdoor activities.  I took a career break to do an RHS level 2 in Horticulture, and this led to running my own gardening business for a few years. More recently I worked for a Special Needs Boarding School in Wiltshire where I worked with all aspects of special needs.  In this role I was able to support boarders and day students in their studies mainly on a 1:1 basis. The variety in education roles I have had plus having my own family has always given me strong pastoral skills which I am putting into practice in my current role.

I have been Head of House at Wyvill Boarding House since September 2020, where I enjoy welcoming our International students and seeing them settle in well. I have many ideas and ensure I support each and every student here.

In my spare time I love cycling, I have many adventures on my bike, including cycling tours in Europe, I am currently planning a big trip for next year. I enjoy training on the cycle routes here in Oxford and along the canals.  I enjoy most sports and have recently taken up rowing.
