Welcome to Northumberland House.
I have been involved with boarding at Barney since I arrived in 2005, and was appointed as Housemaster in 2013.
I live within the Main School building with my partner Rosemary and my Chocolate Labradors, Robin and Ralph – who many boys love to walk or play with.
It is the aim of the House that all of the boys within our care are happy and confident, so that as a result they are able to reach their full potential. I operate an open door ethos that gives the boys in my care any contact or help that they may require.
Northumberland House is a home from home for boarders and provides supportive links between the School, boarders and parents. In addition to addressing boarders’ physical needs and their requirements for security and safety, each House seeks to contribute to its pupils’ development in terms of their confidence, self-esteem and self-awareness.
