Mr Carver Head of Boarding

St. George's Head of Boarding

As Head of Boarding at St. George’s it is my responsibility to ensure that every student under our roof feels part of the family and fully supported while in our care. It is a big responsibility, but with it comes innumerable rewards. Having spent my school years as a boarder myself in England, I am convinced by the benefits a rich boarding experience brings and we are fortunate to be able to offer this in the stunning and safe environment of Clarens, nestled among the Alps on the shores of Lake Geneva. I have worked in boarding schools in England, Germany and Switzerland and I have loved every minute of it. Playing such a key role in educating boarders at a crucial time of their lives – their formative years - is a unique privilege and incredibly rewarding, and my team and I dedicate ourselves to helping each boarder be the best they can be. I am married to Mrs. Carver, I have two daughters at the school and when time allows, I enjoy The Great Outdoors, travelling, reading and skiing.

St. George's House parent

I was born and grew up in Germany, and after graduating with an MA in English and German Literature from University of Hamburg I pursued a career in school expeditions, youth development and travel which enabled me to live and work in some wonderful places around the world. I spent many years organizing and leading school expeditions – an amazing opportunity to share my passion for travel and adventure with young people. Opening their eyes to the wonders of the world and seeing them develop life skills in challenging situations was inspirational and ultimately started me on a path to where I am now. It has been an incredible journey and I have enjoyed every moment of it!

For the past seven years I have worked in boarding schools in Germany and Switzerland as an English teacher, German teacher and Houseparent. Having a house full of teenagers from all over the world ensures I am always kept busy and entertained – there is certainly never a dull moment! Supporting students through their formative years, living with them through all their experiences in an international environment such as St George’s is a privilege and I count myself very lucky. I am married to Mr. Carver and I have two daughters (both of whom attend St. George’s). In my free time I love skiing, running, hiking, reading and travelling.
