Above: The Marshall House Team
Marshall is situated alongside Medway at the easterly end of Lime Avenue, thus enabling girls to ‘come home’ at the end of the day, enjoying a physical and metaphorical separation from the world of classrooms and teaching.
Marshall's Housemaster is Mr Charles Humphery, who has been in post since 2002. Married and the parent of two Benenden Seniors, Mr Humphery teaches English and walks Bob the dog. Prior to joining Benenden he was Head of English at Dulwich Prep School in Cranbrook, having retrained as a teacher following a career in the Lloyd's reinsurance market.
He is supported in House by his Deputy Housemistress, Ms Penelope Leipold, who has been part of the Marshall team since 2000. Ms Leipold is also the co-ordinator of Benenden's highly successful Weekend Programme.
The HM and DHM team are complemented by the Matrons, Miss Ann Bishop is Resident Matron; Mrs Hazel Rea, Day Matron and Mrs Elizabeth Deverell, the Evening Matron. Mrs Carol Flanaghan is Saturday Assistant. The House team is very well assisted by a Graduate Assistant.
