Mr Jonathan Fry was appointed last summer to replace Dr Duncan Pring, who had been Housemaster of Farwell since it was set up in 2001. Like his predecessor, Mr Fry has plenty of experience of working with both boarding and day boys.
Mr Fry also teaches Economics and Business Studies, and his interest in pastoral care and student achievement is often at the forefront of his teaching. A committed Catholic, he enjoys spending time with his family: Rose, his wife, and his two children Grace (16) and Jack (13). He is a keen sportsman, having played competitive club hockey and cricket for many years. In addition he loves tennis, table tennis, ultimate frisbee and singing.
Farwell’s House Chaplain is Fr Peter and he plays an important role in the spiritual development of the boys. A very experienced tutor team of Mr Jeremy Dowling (Y11), Mr Peter Scott (Y10), Mr Andrew Olle (Y9) and Mr Robin Moss (Y9) also help provide the high level of pastoral care that is synonymous with Farwell House.
Farwell House aims to continue the finest traditions of Abbot Farwell and Dr Pring with great emphasis on the three Cs – being caring, compassionate and committed – as its underlying ethos.
