Ed and Bella Saunders live in Francis House with their two young children, Toby and Ruby (and not forgetting Buxton, who is pampered by children throughout the School!). Located at the heart of the school in the historic main building, Francis House has all the charm of the original stately home, with all the 21st century comforts that make a house a home.
Originally the Hall's Gun Room, Wine Cellar, Still Room and Butler’s Pantry, Francis House has been stylishly updated with four comfortable bedders each sleeping up to eight boys.
Developing independence, empathy and respect Francis boys are a close-knit community despite varying ages, backgrounds and interests. Their desire to collaborate and work together brings a genuine sense of belonging and brotherhood (as well as an enormous sense of fun!).
Evening routines are vary and the boys are encouraged to immerse themselves in any of the 94 after school clubs and activities. The incredible facilities at Repton Prep allow for plenty of space to let off steam, while also providing quiet, calm areas to indulge in board games, reading or catching up with friends.
Ed Saunders is also a Year 5 and 6 teacher at Repton Prep with a keen interest in Rugby and History. The boys in Francis are truly treated as part of the family and are seen as big brothers by Ed and Bella's little ones!
The House Assistant, Mrs. Margaret Hollioake, brings a wealth of experience to the team and is undoubtedly the world’s greatest maker of hot chocolate! House Tutors Mr Ian Clarkson (Head of Year 6 and Head of Football), Mr Mike Casey (Head of Boarding) and Miss Cavill (Deputy Head Lower Prep) lend pastoral as well as academic support.
