The Residential Managers

Bret Hawthorne

Academic Director

Our three Taunton Managers

The Devon School has three managers on site: The Centre Manager, who oversees all aspects of the residential programme; the Director of Studies, who is responsible for the academic programme; and the Activities Manager, who is in charge of running the exciting programme of activities and excursions. Together, they deal with all aspects of organisation, planning, supervision, security and pastoral care on and off the campus.

The three managers are supported by our House Parents, teachers and activity leaders. The managers constantly liaise with the foreign group leaders and Queen's College staff to make sure that everything runs smoothly and any problems that might arise are addressed immediately and effectively. Above all, they are responsible for the welfare, safeguarding and pastoral care of all our students, especially of those students arriving individually in which case they act in the place of group leaders.
