Maggie Grey - House Parent

Hi, I’m Maggie, joint House Parent to the boarders, along with Mr Gray (my partner in crime!)

I have been at Nunnykirk for almost 3 years (feels like longer!) previously as catering manager, and before that, catering assistant. I must say that my present role is the most demanding, but most definitely rewarding, of the three!

Our main role as House Parents, is to ensure the children are looked after and kept occupied, out of school hours, including overnight. This covers lots of activities from prep (not the most popular, but very necessary and beneficial!) to the more fun outings, like bowling and beach trips!

Outside school, I’m equally as busy, with two grown-up children and one 11 year old of my own.

Lots of my spare time is spent on the farm with my husband, helping with livestock, which I thoroughly enjoy, lambing time being my favourite!

We also have 8 dogs (not all in the house!) 3 cats, chickens and last but not least goldfish, so as you can see, there’s not a lot of time left for much else!
