Frewen College

The Boarding Staff Team

We are often told from our boarders that we have a 'home from home' atmosphere in boarding and our committed and friendly boarding staff ensure students feel at home. 

Miss H Lewis 

Head of Boarding 

Having been a boarder myself from an early age I just knew I was destined to find a career in pastoral care. I have been a Girls’ Boarding Housemistress for many years now, before taking on the role of Head of Boarding. I live onsite with my Labradoodle, Penny, and Tortoise, Luna. The ever-changing world brings into sharp focus the importance of a full holistic education, and the part I play in the lives of the students in my care is one I feel very proud to have.

I run fun and relaxed boarding houses and encourage positivity and individuality. I have a BA in History, love a good chat about pretty much anything, enjoy arts and crafts, movie nights (with popcorn - of course!) and singing loudly and out of tune which the students find highly entertaining! It is a privilege and a joy to watch the students grow in confidence and develop their own sense of self.

Miss L Katz 

Assistant Housemistress - Girls' House 

Having been a boarder in South Africa from primary school to university, to working as an assistant Houseparent at Frewen College, I have completed a full circle!

I taught Art and Ceramics in South Africa before immigrating to England, to join my daughters and resume a new career in house parenting.

I am a keen outdoor and wildlife enthusiast with an interest in art, crafting and history.

Mrs C Allsopp

School Matron 

My background is in the field of infectious diseases. I am fascinated with the unseen world of microorganisms, and prior to joining Frewen College I ran a WHO Reference Laboratory and worked on disease diagnosis for many years.

I like to take a holistic approach to health and wellbeing and am very proud to have received the Frewen Boarding "Duct Tape Award" for being able to fix just about anyone! 

Mr J Potter 

Housemaster - Boys' House 

After 20 years in the emergency services, I took up the opportunity to seek a new career in education. After qualifying as a teacher, I became a Housemaster and Head of boarding at a previous school and jumped at the chance to work at Frewen College.

What makes me a great Housemaster...

I make the boarders feel like they are part of a family. Boarders have a sense of belonging, have fun, feel safe, supported and be the best versions of themselves they can be. 

Mr M Uren 

Assistant Housemaster - Boys' House 

I immigrated to the UK from South Africa in 2018 after having matriculated from high school. I was a boarder myself and so when I was offered the job as Assistant Housemaster at Frewen College I was thrilled. 

I am a keen rugby player and have an interest in most sports including rugby, cricket and American football.

I am an avid reader, reading a variety of genres, but fantasy is my favourite. I am currently studying for a degree in English and Creative Writing thorough The Open University. 

I enjoy listening to country and rock music; a perk of the job being I get to wake the boys up in the morning for breakfast by playing loud music, with anything from Meatloaf to bagpipes, Taylor Swift to Frozen!

Mr R Sansiviero

Assistant Housemaster - Boys' House

I am a T.A experienced in Pastoral, with areas of expertise: Football, Music, Languages, and Acting. Committed to making a contribution to all the students' personal growth, as a part of their learning experience.
