Meet the House Team - Carpenter
Laura Jones joined us as Carpenter Housemistress when Karen Cole retired this year. Laura was a Senior Mistress at Llandovery College and was responsible for the pastoral well-being of the pupils throughout the school. She also led a team of six as the Head of Learning Support, and comes to us a as qualified SENCo and Dyslexia/SpLD specialist.
When not teaching or leading a house, Laura enjoys netball, and is a qualified netball and hockey coach, as well as a netball umpire. She also loves to paint (acrylics) and enjoys running half marathons.
Laura joined King's with her husband Dafydd, who was also a Housemaster at Llandovery, and their children: Martha (six) and Mabel (three). Dafydd has joined our chemistry department, and replaces David Cole.
Momoka Hayash (Mo) is a keen footballer and talented linguist. She lives in the flat at the front of Carpenter, which is situated along the corridor past the junior study rooms. She is an important point of contact if you need to see a member of staff or just fancy a chat.

Dawn Slade - always called 'Matron' - is much loved in the house and will offer a friendly ear if you need a chat. She will help wake you up in the mornings, check you are keeping your area tidy, and make sure you change your bed on the right day! Our domestic assistants Kathy, Dawn and Louise will keep your rooms clean - if you keep them tidy!
Scarlett is in her final year at King's. She loves drama and has taken part in every production since she started at the school. Her passion is singing – she is a member of the King's Choir and enjoys performing at events such as our Rock Concerts.
Sport has also played a large role in her time at King's. She has taken part in netball, hockey and tennis teams over the years.
After leaving the school, Scarlett hopes to go on to do a primary school teaching qualification. She'd love to work with young children in a primary school setting.
In her role as House Captain, Scarlett can't wait to make the role her own. She has boarded since she was eight years old, and feels well-placed to share her own experiences to her fellow housemates in Carpenter.
