The Head, Mrs Emma Taylor, is happy to announce that the new Day Houseparent of Alway House from September 2015 will be Mrs Ruth Allen. Mrs Allen is a long-standing and greatly respected tutor in Alway and the pupils there already know her well. She will take up the leadership of the house in September at a time when numbers in the house are at a historic high point, with our first group of Year 6 pupils coming through from St Nicholas House as well as those joining from primary schools and from further afield. She is excited about the prospect of running the house she has always loved so much: “I feel proud and privileged to take on the position of Day Houseparent of Always House. Alway has a fundamental and special role within our school. I very much look forward to welcoming our new pupils into a warm and encouraging environment where they will feel happy, supported and valued as individuals.”
Mrs Allen is married to Jonathan, a police officer, and they have twin boys, Jacob and Harri, who are already very much part of the school community and who bring a sense of fun and energy to any social gathering in the house.
The Head, Mrs Emma Taylor, said ‘I am thrilled that Mrs Allen has agreed to take on this vital role in the school; her pastoral experience and her strong academic credentials bode well for the future of the pupils in her care over the coming years.’
We will, in due course, be appointing a Senior Resident Assistant to run junior boarding, which from September will also include younger boarders from St Nicholas House. The Resident will be assisted by the resident Sports Assistants and gap students to ensure that younger boarders have a wealth of fun activities in the evenings and at weekends as well as a home from home during term time.
