People at Tolcarne

He aha te mea nui o te ao?
He tangata, he tangata, he tangata.
What is the most important thing in the world?
It is people, it is people, it is people.

Tolcarne is a beautiful boarding facility, but it’s the people who really make the place. Our team of staff are warm, approachable, and are naturals at their jobs. Here’s an introduction to the family:

Ange Rathbone, our Director of Boarding, lives on site with her family. She plays a big part in day to day activities at Tolcarne, attending meetings, joining in activities, and enjoying meals with the girls.

Robyn and Ziggy are our Junior and Senior Deans. They work closely to the girls, providing nurturing, pastoral care.

We have exceptional, energetic House Staff. They both look after and get on well with the girls, forming close bonds based on trust. Two of these staff also live on site, and they play a big role in the happiness and harmony of Tolcarne.

We have an Office Administrator and Health Centre Manager who is the first port of call if the girls aren’t feeling well, providing motherly health care and support. The school guidance counsellor and chaplain also drop by regularly to offer extra pastoral support and guidance for the girls.

Our Catering Manager and her brilliant team provide nutritious, well-balanced, and of course, delicious meals. They’re happy to cater to individual dietary requirements, ensuring absolutely every student eats well.

Our Property Manager’s goal is to keep Tolcarne’s facilities and grounds world class. He also oversees the incredible cleaning team.

Finally, we have a full time Financial Administrator who looks after Tolcarne’s finances. Our Director of Boarding couldn’t live without her admin support too.
