Constables is home to 52 girls aged 13-18 and is situated on the Leicester Road, backing onto the sports centre (USSC) and Leonardo Centre. It has a rich history as a former workhouse and hospital, dating from 1834 and it has been part of the School for over 150 years.
It was converted from a boys’ house in 2006 and benefitted from extensive reorganisation, redecoration and significant extension. Set in beautiful gardens, the top two year groups all have their own bedsits, whilst the Lower and Upper Fifths share double bedsits. The Fourth Form are accommodated in dormitories of two or four and share studies in pairs. The House enjoys common areas for games, TV, cooking and socialising.
Since September 2012, Constables has been run by Tyrone and Alex Howe, who joined the School in September 2011 to take on this role.
Tyrone and Alex both began their teaching careers at Marlborough College. Tyrone is a member of the Politics and Business Studies departments and was educated at St Andrews and Keble College, Oxford. He is a former international rugby player and, after captaining Oxford, he went on to represent Ireland, the British Lions and the Barbarians. Alex, who is teaching Classics, read Classics at Jesus College, Cambridge, where she represented the University in golf and rowing. She spent eight years in executive search in both London and New Zealand and was most recently Head of Classics at the Royal Belfast Academical Institution.
Completing the Constables team are the Howes’ twins, Hugo and Georgia and their thoroughbred ‘murph-hound’, called Murphy.
