Mrs Michelle Creer
It is with great pleasure that I introduce myself as the Housemistress of Chetwynd.
I have seen many families and girls arrive on a sunny September morning nervous and uncertain, unsure of what to expect. I have then shaken hands, years later, with exceptional, well-grounded, insightful and dynamic young women as they leave for new adventures and embark on the next phase of life, whatever and wherever it may be! Along the way there have been numerous highlights and experiences that have made life rich and varied, and have underscored to me why I chose pastoral work, and teaching, as my career pathway.
In addition to being a Housemistress, I will also be teaching English and I bring with me a passion for drama and performance. I also believe passionately in co-education and in an immersive education. I would always advocate trying out new things; exploiting known (and possibly hidden) talents. Any new start is always something of a challenge, but through challenge we learn and grow. This is an exciting opportunity – to take a building familiar to many, but within it found a new House together and establish the environment we all want. You will always find me there as a support, encouraging, and sometimes nudging the girls on, to do their very best.
