Hayley McIlvean

Juniors’ House Parent

I was born in Scotland and educated in many different parts of the UK; Scotland, Northern Ireland, Berkshire, the Midlands and Devon. Finally settling in Devon in my teens meant I developed a great love of the sea and life in the outdoors. I love travelling, hiking, skiing and cycling.
I have two grown up children, Tom and Hattie, who love the countryside and animals just as much as me!
I have worked in independent schools since 1996, enjoying teaching sport and PSHE before moving into pastoral care. I loved being a housemistress at Sherborne Girls School for nine years and at Thornton College last year.
