Boarding pupils at Bilton Grange are cared for by a dedicated team led by our Assistant Head (Boarding), Mark Tovey. Each of the houses has a House Mother as well as a wider boarding matronal and tutor support network which ensures our pupils’ wellbeing is central to boarding here.
Mark was brought up in a boarding preparatory school where his father was headmaster for 40 years which has provided him with great insight in to the emotions that young boarders go through as they enter a new environment, the challenges they face and how best to support them.
He and his wife Clare live between the girls’ and boys’ boarding houses which enables him to ensure that all runs smoothly for our boarding community. Their three children are all pupils here.
