Housemistress: Mrs Suzy Phelps (MA, PGCE, QTS)

Mrs Phelps was born in Wales as one of 4 sisters. After leaving school Mrs Phelps went to Cardiff University to study Environmental Geoscience, which allowed her to indulge in her passion for the outdoors.

Mrs Phelps completed a PGCE in Swansea, before moving on to work at Blundell’s School in Devon, where she met her husband, who is a History teacher and hockey coach. In 2009 the couple relocated to Christ College, Brecon; during this time Mrs Phelps worked as a Sports Coach, Assistant DSL, Biology Teacher and a Houseparent. Mr and Mrs Phelps were delighted to start a family and are parents to two lovely boys, Freddie (10) and Max (8).

Outside of work, Mrs Phelps spends time with her family at their holiday home by the beach in Pembrokeshire, enjoying long hikes along the coastal path, swimming in the sea and paddle boarding.

Other interests include DIY and up-cycling furniture, reading dystopian fiction and “tidying up what seems like an endless supply of Lego.”
