Meet the Boarding Team

A boarding house is not complete without a whole host of staff to look after, care for, and manage the wellbeing of all students. We’re lucky to have some pretty phenomenal staff...

 Mrs Emma Stott
Head of Boarding

Emma absolutely loved school as a youngster and was an extremely high achieving and gifted student. It was this experience that has propelled her into becoming fully immersed into the life of St Bees as Head of Boarding and there couldn’t be a more warm, bubbly or wonderfully kind person to oversee the everyday runnings of a busy Boarding community.

Emma, a previous county gymnast for three consecutive years, may have hung up her leotard and whilst not backflipping down the corridors, has the meticulous organisation and ability to juggle a million things at once. These are skills most certainly necessary to keep a house full of young people in check - whilst also ensuring they have fun and feel that this truly is their home from home.

Following school education, Emma worked in an established catering department before going into care work, successfully completing her Diploma in Dementia/Alzheimer’s and end-of-life care. As the Mental Health lead at St Bees, Emma is fully qualified in Safeguarding vulnerable adults and children, Deprivation of Liberties, medication administration and is familiar with the Mental Health Capacity Act.

Sadly Emma had to leave her care position with the birth of her son, Noah (frequently seen wandering around the Boarding House!) - but fortuitously became Head of Boarding in 2019. Emma is a fantastic Head of House and is absolutely thrilled to play such a vital part in each and every boarder’s experience of living away from home
