Garnetts is a friendly and welcoming house, which accommodates Year 13 boarders. The atmosphere around the house is very social and warm but Garnetts is also a quiet place to study.
The idea is to create a home from home feeling for all the members of the house. This helps everyone feel comfortable and supported. All the girls are very supportive of each other and Garnetts is the perfect setting to develop strong lasting friendships. The plan of the house is modern, bright and attractive.
Meet the Housemistress
Mrs Sarah Barrett was appointed HM of Garnetts, from September 2014. Sarah joined Felsted in 2002 as ‘Miss Hookway’, teacher of Physical Education. She was attached to Garnetts from the start as a Tutor, and in 2005, was appointed as Assistant Housemistress. At this time the house was a vertical house from Year 9 to Upper Sixth and Sarah was in situ when the House changed to an Upper Sixth House.
During her time at the School, Sarah has taught GCSE and A Level PE, organised numerous tours, trips and shows, run the London Marathon but, most importantly, Sarah is dedicated to the Felsted community.
Sarah married her husband Noel in 2013, who is the brother of Mr Barrett (HM Windsor’s). Together Sarah and Noel always look forward to welcoming every girl in the School, into Garnetts when the time comes, to complete their school career.
