I have been part of Lancaster since the house system was developed so I pride myself on being green to my core. I worked first as a Lancaster tutor and in 2015 was honoured to be asked to take over the role of House Leader.

The students of Lancaster house have a strong sense of their house identity and this is integral to their part as members of the wider school community. My own teaching area is in Creative Arts and I am especially proud of the creative abilities of everyone in ‘team green’. That said we have a considerable amount of talent when it comes to sporting competitions and what is required for many other house activities and opportunities.

I am supported in my role by a Lancaster House Captain and a deputy, both year ten students. Working as a team we like to challenge the perception that ‘it’s not easy being green’. The commitment and creativity shown by all of the students in Lancaster makes it very easy indeed.
