House Handbook

One of the strongest elements of the pastoral care system at Lord Wandsworth College is the integral role that the House system plays for every student in the College. Hazelveare House is no exception, with a broad range of Day students living with Full, Weekly and Flexi boarders in a happy, settled and family environment (if you can imagine a family of 80 odd boys!).

In Hazelveare, we encourage every child to be an individual and to take pride and ownership in all that they do, from setting the standard in the classroom to performing on the stage, the sports field, in music or beyond in the multitude of opportunities that the College offers its pupils. We aim to ensure that every child goes through their time in Hazelveare with a sense of ownership and pride where we all work together and celebrate each others successes in a happy, diverse and welcoming environment. To help achieve this, the house has a strong leadership structure with a pupil led house council, pupil Head and Deputy Heads of House and an experienced group of staff who run the tutor groups established in the house.

Charity plays an integral role in the House, and in particular we support Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) which hold a very special place in the heart of the House.

We are very fortunate in our resident staff in Hazelveare. We have a wonderful domestic team, led by our matrons, Ceci Elliot and Debbie Plowright who are an integral presence in the House and help create the home away from home feel. I am supported by the hugely experienced Andrew Lay, our Resident Tutor and the Head of Economics.

Hazelveare’s doors are always open and we would be delighted to invite you to come and visit us and experience a Hazelveare house welcome.
