Above: The Beeches House Team
Beeches is the original Founders House, built for Six Twos, in 1983.
Alfred Nicol is the Housemaster of the newly refurbished Beeches. He joined Benenden in 2008 as Head of Religious Studies and is now jointly responsible for the timetable and governor of The John Wallis Academy. His wife Mellony, a law graduate, Assistant in the Library and teacher of Law Extension, along with their nine year old daughter Roseanne, work together in Beeches to build a caring and productive community for all the girls as they complete their A Levels and prepare for university. Alfred and Mellony both come from Kent and studied in Canterbury and Cardiff respectively.
The Deputy Housemistress is Miss Claire Faram, English graduate and England Lacrosse player.
Our wise and wonderful Matrons, whom we share with Elms, are Mrs Fiona Knowles, Resident Matron, and Mrs Margie Croysdill and Mrs Carol Battson, Day Matrons, and we are blessed with a superb domestic team.
