Cottage is the only Lodge not on the school campus. It is a mere 15 seconds walk across Mayfield Road, but this is enough to give it special status. Cottage is for boys in their final year, and they love the atmosphere of the Lodge. It has a homely atmosphere, and is definitely the perfect place to relax and chill out after a busy day at school. On warm spring and summer evenings, the boys enjoy playing boules and a version of 'quick cricket' outside the Lodge.
Chris and Sarah Sparrow have been Lodgeparents at Summer Fields since January 2001. Having lived in prep schools for most of their lives, they believe that being a Lodgeparent is not just a job, it's a way of life. They have a grown up daughter, and a Patterdale terrier.
