Miss Leonie Serbrock

Head of Boarding


Meet Miss Serbrock

I am Miss Serbrock, the Head of Boarding. I started working at Mowden in 2016 having come from a background of working with children and young people for over 15 years.

I strive to ensure that each boarder in our house feels genuinely cared for, safe, and secure. I feel we have a relaxed, family environment within the boarding house where Mowden children can feel at home. I love living and working here because it is so much fun. We're always busy enjoying ourselves, laughing and smiling with each other. I like to see our children developing in many ways. For me, their imaginative play and creativity are really special wonders. I enjoy singing loudly, hot holidays, and have a weakness for all things that taste yummy, including the amazing Mowden doughnuts!

Miss Sinead Hunter

Assistant House Parent

Meet Miss Hunter

I am Miss Hunter, I have worked at Mowden Hall for 16 years. I started my Mowden career in the kitchen as a Kitchen Assistant. I moved into the boarding side of the school in January 2021 as a Boarding Assistant and was just recently promoted to Assistant Houseparent. I endeavour to make sure each and every boarder feels safe, cared for, and listened to. I have lived in the boarding house since 2021 and genuinely love it, it is so much fun. I wake up daily to new challenges which often lead to very rewarding results and there is great pride in watching our children at Mowden blossom into young, independent teenagers.

I have a passion for working my two Labradors and also spending quality time with my family making memories.

I am very proud to be the School Nurse here at
Mowden Hall. I support the health and well-being of
our pupils with care tailored to their individual
needs. I provide all medical care, advice and first aid

my family keep me very busy!
