From the Housemaster of Raleigh
Raleigh is an established day house for boys and girls and includes large day rooms, a fantastic array of study rooms, lockable storage for games kit and changing facilities. The house has a warm, cosy feel.
At the forefront of my ethos is the idea that you should be happy and love your time in Raleigh and at RHS. The welfare and happiness of every pupil is key. Raleigh is a friendly, respectful, supportive, and happy house where pupils are challenged to try their best in everything that they do, display honesty, take care of each other, and take responsibility for their actions. We will always be there to provide a listening ear and offer support where required.
In Raleigh I am supported by a wonderful matron, Marianne Eales, who has a wealth of experience, and a great team of tutors.
Before joining RHS I worked in British International Schools for 10 years. I was a head of year and director of studies at the British School of Beijing for 5 years. Then I worked as assistant head pastoral at the British International School in Budapest. Before returning to the UK and joining RHS I was at St George’s College in Buenos Aires as deputy head academic. I have a great deal of experience leading both the pastoral and academic development of young people. I will be moving into the Raleigh residence with my wife Jo who works in the learning support department at RHS, and our children Elijah and Isaac.
I look forward to welcoming you to Raleigh.
