It is a privilege to work in a residential community and help the students in our care develop into young adults. I bring to Freeland House experience in boarding in Australia and New Zealand. I am married to Janine and we have three sons, Andrew, Timothy and Nicholas.
We are supported by a committed team of tutors experienced in both pastoral care and academic assistance and by caring domestic staff. Our student leaders are interested in the lives of the members of the house and do all that they can to make each person’s time in Freeland a happy and fulfilling experience.
Brian Heaney, Housemaster
To provide a safe, caring, supportive environment in which the members of the house can develop educationally, emotionally, physically and socially.
The most important thing in Freeland House is the way we treat each other.
- Members of the house should always be thoughtful and considerate in the way they interact with each other.
- Members should be allowed to be themselves with their opinions valued and their privacy respected.
- Freeland aims to provide an environment in which each boy is encouraged to try new things and supported in making the most of his talents.
- The quality of the effort made is as important as the quality of the achievement.
- The opportunity for everyone to be involved is as important as winning.
The members of the house are encouraged to take pride in the house such that the effort of each individual contributes towards making it a better place for all to live. Students should learn to accept responsibility for their actions and for themselves.
