Plewlands is a vibrant and exciting place to be; there is always something going on and someone to have a chat with which creates a really positive environment in the house. That said, the house is equally supportive when it comes to knuckling down to academic work, and older students are more than willing to assist their younger housemates if needed.
After spending two years as a tutor in Plewlands, I was delighted to be offered the opportunity to take up the role of Housemistress while Mrs Paterson is on maternity leave. I aim to provide a home-like experience to the girls and my door is always open. I may not be much of a baker but I can certainly rustle up a comforting cuppa and there's always a plentiful supply of biscuits if needed! I hope that the girls think of the house as somewhere that they can feel safe, comfortable and able to really be themselves.
Without our Matron, Mrs Lerner, daily life for the girls would be much more difficult. She is extremely popular, providing a listening ear when required, helping the girls with their laundry and ensuring they keep their bedrooms clean and tidy, among other things
Alongside Matron, the House is also in the capable hands of Miss Mullan, the Assistant House Mistress. Being accommodated in an integral flat, she is a great asset to the girls who love to find an excuse to have a brew with her. Further to this we enjoy the presence of several tutors, each of whom spends one evening a week on duty in the House. Being directly responsible for about 10 students, the tutors play a very active role in the pastoral and academic development of each girl.
