Mrs Claire Phillips is our Meynell Housemistress. Claire was a house assistant in Meynell before taking on the role of Housemistress. She lives with her husband and son, and as well as being your main point of contact in the house, Claire also teaches in our busy physics department.
Prior to entering education, Claire worked in the racing industry, attending college and studying a national diploma in thoroughbred horses, before landing a job at Paul Nichols’ yard, where she spent the next seven years working as a groom. She has fond memories looking after and riding Grand National winner Silver Birch, as well as high performer Royal Auclair.
Claire is still able to enjoy her love of horses by helping at our equestrian centre. She also supports our girls’ rugby programme.
