Boarding Staff


Dedicated boarding staff, teachers and gap tutors are always on hand to care for our boarding pupils.

Our Houseparents, boarding staff and GAP tutors spend time with the children in the evenings, reading stories, playing games and supervising activities, before helping to settle the children as they get ready for bed.

There are plenty of adults on site during the night to help out in any eventuality. These include the Houseparents, matron, gap tutors and the headmaster, who lives at the school with his family. This means our boarders feel safe and comfortable in a happy and homely environment, where they are always well looked after.

Our gap tutors play an important role in school. They are mostly gap-year students, often from South Africa, New Zealand or Australia, as well as the UK, and occasionally include some former Maidwell pupils. Pupils regard gap tutors rather like big brothers and sisters. Gap tutors play an active role in school life, helping to supervise and look after the children, and support staff with the many co-curricular activities we offer.
