Bowes House

Welcome to Bowes House.

As Bowes Housemistress, I have had the privilege of working with many wonderful girls and a fantastic team of tutors since September 2013. Before my appointment as Housemistress, I worked as a tutor in Marwood and, later, as a resident tutor in Longfield House. I teach French and Spanish, as well as offering Portuguese as an after-school activity.

My time at Barney, however, started on the other side of the classroom, as a student in the Senior School from 1996-2003. I was a very proud member of the first Upper Sixth of the newly formed Bowes House and, as such, I understand first-hand the importance of the House to the girls and what a special community it is.

We hope to provide all members of the House with the opportunities to learn and develop, both intellectually and personally, within a happy and caring community. We also believe it is increasingly important to foster an environment in which mutual respect and moral values are considered important and are, therefore, allowed to flourish.

We like to think that the girls in the House are proud of Bowes and all that it stands for.
