Mayfield houses some Year 7 boys and about half of the senior boarders (the other half being in Cottage). It is said to be one of the oldest houses in Summertown.
It now provides seven dormitories of various sizes, plentiful bath and shower facilities and a common room for relaxing during the evening. Mayfield’s facilities will be upgraded over the next two to three years starting in the summer of 2023.
In the summer months, Mayfield boarders benefit from use of the nearby grass tennis court (dressing gown tennis and pyjama football are town of our most popular and eye-catching activities).
Lodgeparents Pete and Lindsay Dickinson have lived in Botswana and South Africa and moved to the UK teaching at several other local schools. Peter was previously Deputy Head at Christ Church Cathedral School and Director of Sport at Ryde, whilst Lindsay previously taught at Chandlings. They have two grown up children who were boarders, so understand what it is like for parents. Their daughter is now following in their footsteps pursuing a career in education.
