Latimer (Day, Senior Girls)

Junior and Senior Days Girls aged 14 to 18 (3rd Form - Upper Sixth)

Hello and welcome to Latimer! My name is Helen Evans and I’m the houseparent, looking after nearly 60 senior day girls (3rd to 6th form). I’ve been at Kingham since 2012 and work in the Learning Support department, occasionally teaching English. I’m married to Mr Evans (who also teaches at the school) and we have 2 grown-up daughters. I have a team of experienced tutors to help me in Latimer, and every girl is assigned a tutor group so that the tutor can really get to know each pupil.

Our priority as a house team is to ensure that every girl is known well, feels supported and is able to thrive at Kingham, making the most of everything that the School has to offer. We understand that starting at a new school can be daunting, and we make sure new girls are given a buddy to help them through the first few weeks. We are a friendly bunch and being kind is important to all of us.

Latimer House isn’t the prettiest building on the Hill, but it is in the best location, right in the centre of the campus! That means it’s a great place to hang out at break and lunch times. There’s a snooker table, a piano and a little kitchen area for making toast. Every girl has their own locker in which to keep games kit and school books.

I look forward to meeting you!

Houseparent, Helen Evans
