Meet our Head of House: Hannah Mungall

I’m Hannah, Head of Islip House and Pastoral Mentor for the Sixth Form.  I have been working at d’Overbroeck’s for 20 years now, d’Overbroeck’s is in my blood!

I have had the privilege of watching d’Overbroeck’s change and grow into what the school has become now.  I started at d’Overbroeck’s on reception but have been working in the sixth form pastoral team for 11 years so have lots of experience of working with and caring for young people.  As the schools boarding provision has expanded I took on the challenge of becoming Head of House at Islip in September 2019.  I love my job, working with a variety of young people is very rewarding and so much fun!

I think it’s important for students to be able to be themselves, do well academically and grow into well-rounded young people.  At Islip we have a real sense of community and we become a family; we work together and play together and relax together.  We keep students busy in their free time with activities running in the house most weekends.

 

I live in Islip with my husband and cavapoo puppy Darcie and love cooking and baking as well as long walks with Darcie.
