From the Housemaster ST VINCENT
St Vincent House sets out to provide a nurturing and supportive environment that encourages individual growth, participation in all aspects of school life, and the development of essential life skills. As the Housemaster, my aim is to foster qualities such as leadership, independence, mutual trust, pride, and kindness in our boys. We want our students to leave St Vincent not only with a strong academic foundation but also with a sense of consideration and compassion that will serve them well throughout their lives.
I have been at RHS since 2019. I spent three years as Resident Assistant before taking up the post of Housemaster, alongside my role as Head of History and Politics. For me, the heart of St Vincent is based on fostering the values of kindness, self-discipline, and teamwork. We have high expectations of our boys to conduct themselves in a way that not only benefits their personal growth but also contributes to the wellbeing of everyone in our community. While we encourage ambition, we also stress the importance of being considerate, showing respect and tolerance for others. Loyalty and commitment to House activities are central to the success of our boarding house.
Our House Team is the backbone of St Vincent House. Right from the moment the boys wake up the house staff are there to dispense medicine, sort and wash clothes, provide support, listen to their woes, share in their triumphs, shop for essentials; the list is endless. In short, we are there for the boys in everything that they do. Everything we do is geared toward fostering and encouraging a sense of family where we live.
We are dedicated to making your son's years at St Vincent House the best of his life. We aim to preserve the innocence of school days while nurturing ambition, confidence, and good judgment. Our hope is that your son will leave us ready for the next stage of his life with humility and self-assurance.
St Vincent House is not just a place to stay; it's a place to grow, thrive, and build lasting friendships. We invite you to be a part of our welcoming and supportive community, where your son can embark on a journey of self-discovery and personal development.
I look forward to welcoming you to St Vincent House, a place to grow and develop.
Housemaster and Head of History and Politics
