Harriet Dare

Assistant Houseparent, Parker’s

My name is Harriet Dare and I joined Parker’s Boarding House in January 2021. I live here at West Buckland School with my partner and dog. I enjoy travelling, going for dog walks and spending time with family and friends.

I have 6 years experience of working in a boarding house and really enjoy getting to know all the pupils on an individual basis. I aim to provide a fun, caring, and friendly atmosphere in the Boarding house, so our boarders thrive personally and academically. I encourage the boarders to try new experiences so that they can develop fond and fun memories of their time here at West Buckland School.
