Longfield House

Welcome to Longfield House.

I have been the Longfield Housemistress since September 2018, and I am also a PE teacher at Barney. My husband, Martin, is the Head of PE and Games in the Prep School and we have two daughters, Jessie and Hattie.

From 2011-2018, I was Housemistress of Marwood House and, prior to this, I was a tutor in Longfield House.

Longfield House is a thriving girls’ boarding house for 13 – 18 year olds. Our aim is to create a warm family environment in which girls can flourish into confident, well-rounded individuals.

We are fortunate to have such a happy, caring and close knit community at Longfield, with an atmosphere of trust and respect where others are always considered. The girls are encouraged to be thoughtful, responsible, friendly and inclusive of others within their community. They embrace the many opportunities the School has to offer with ambition, determination and purpose.
