Park House, the girls’ boarding house, is run by James and Beth Mullock. James teaches Geography and PSHE as well as boys’ games and he has been part of the boarding team at Packwood since he joined the school in 2011. Beth joined Packwood in 2012 as a Teaching Assistant and member of the girls’ games staff. She was Assistant Matron in Park House up until her maternity leave began – she and James now have two young sons, Otto and Dougie, and a daughter, Maggie. Mr and Mrs Mullock work with Assistant Girls’ Houseparent, Miss Jones and several other members of staff help out on a boarding duty rota.
Roy and Cristina Chambers are the boys’ houseparents. Roy was a boarder from the tender age of eight and loved the full prep school experience. He is now one of Packwood’s deputy heads. Cristina is pursuing a counselling diploma and is very much involved in listening to and caring for the boys. They are backed up by a strong team of experienced boarding staff and matrons, with their two young children (Jessica and Sebastian) and dog (Laika) not far behind. Roy and Cristina are keen to recreate the ‘family feel’ in the boarding house, and will be hosting each boys’ landing in their sitting room one evening a week..
