Assistant Houseparent: Georgie Blackburn

Georgie BlackburnHello! My Name is Georgie Blackburn.

My background is in Criminology and Childcare. I attended University of Worcester and Studied Applied Criminology. I then moved to Canada and was a private Aupair for a family in Alberta. Once my contract ended, I studied Early Childhood Education at Red Deer College, Alberta before moving back home to England. For the last 1 ½ years I have worked at a Girls boarding school in North London as a Boarding Assistant.

I love being outside (especially at the beach) and spend lots of time walking outside with my Cavapoo Pup called Moon. I also am a big musicals/Disney fan so try to visit the theatre as much as possible!

I have quite a large collection of houseplants and consider myself a bit of a green thumb.

Assistant Houseparent: Jonathan Hall

Matron: Lisa Hole

Mrs Hole been at Sexey’s School for about 17 years, having worked in the kitchens and for the last 10 years or so in boarding. She has been matron for about 8 years and really enjoys the role.

Mrs Hole has seen many students enter in Year 7 and leave in year 13, sad to leave but ready to take on the world. She said ‘It is a privilege to be part of that and help students get ready for life outside Sexey’s’. Her hobbies include gardening, reading cycling and a little light running which  she started in lockdown.
