Matron, Turner's

It is a privilege and pleasure to be part of the lives of our high-achieving students. I work closely with Housemaster Chris Good and his wife Jo to create a family atmosphere in which the boys feel supported and happy. Such a ‘home’ environment allows them to make the most of the opportunities Winchester College has to offer.

As a mother of two sons and one daughter - all now adults, and scattered across the globe - I understand well the highs and lows of teenage life and the importance of a stable and understanding background.

I am a New Zealander, and left a career in veterinary medicine ten years ago to seek new experiences overseas. I have relished the challenge of a new vocation as Matron and Housekeeper of Turner's (Hopper’s), and love being part of this exceptional school with its long history and reputation for scholarship.
