Boarding at Shaftesbury School is managed by the Head of Boarding, Mr S Crossley. Mr Crossley lives at the boarding house with his wife and two children who are very much part of the whole boarding house family. Ms E Watt serves at the Assistant Head of Boarding and she also lives on-site with her dog, Dixie.
The rest of the staff do duty in the boarding house, either during the week or at the weekend and the dedicated and committed house staff work together to provide the best possible care for all our boarders. Students say that the house staff treat the children like their own and our boarding house is run like one big family home. The other house parents who work at the boarding house are a mixture of school staff and other part-time staff.
