MEET THE HOUSEPARENT- JESSICA BRIGGS

Jessica Briggs came to Dean Close from a positon as Housemistress of a large boarding house at Cheltenham Ladies College. Previously, Jessica was Head of Year and Second in Charge of English at Streatham and Clapham High School (GDST) and spent the early part of her teaching career working at boarding schools in the South West.

Her husband, Tom, is a trained primary school teacher and used to work at Airthrie Prep School in Cheltenham before dedicating all of his time to their two young children: Matilda (Tilly) and Florence (Florrie).

Jessica and her family enjoy holidaying in Cornwall, kayaking, swimming and walking the Cornish coast.

MEET THE HEAD OF HOUSE – Rose Tingey

Fawley House is one of the girls’ boarding houses at Dean Close Senior School. Fawley has around 50 girls in the House, meaning that everyone from every age group and friendship group knows each other and inter-year friendships are easy to make. We are known for our excellent team spirit and our good attitude to getting stuck in!

The Fawley motto is “She flies with her own wings”, which is evidently upheld, with Fawley girls demonstrating independence and determination, whilst also making the most of every opportunity given. Everybody is encouraged to take part, no matter what their ability in the given event is; be it football, hockey, cooking or academic quizzes we all get involved.

The House itself is very homely, with many communal spaces where all the girls come together including: the main common room, the kitchen and the sixth form common room. Our hope for new girls coming into Fawley is that it is a ‘home from home’ move, and with our reputation of a great community spirit and a welcoming environment, we hope this is achieved.
