Matron, Fearon's

I have been Matron/Housekeeper at Fearons for 14 years. Most of my working life has been spent in a welfare capacity and I really enjoy working with young people and problem solving.

Working at Winchester College is such a privilege. To be able to help these young men in their formative years is very rewarding. In addition, to be able to live and work in such a beautiful environment is an absolute joy. Life in the boarding house is fun and never dull. I try to be someone they can talk to easily and confide in if necessary. I try to be fair, approachable and helpful, and I want them to be able to come and talk to me about anything at all and I will always do my best to help or point them in the right direction.
