Merton Day House

The Day House was first opened in 2017 and in September 2020 relocated to a newly renovated and refurbished home close to the main school buildings. The House name Merton comes from the name previously held by the building.

Merton operates as our other senior houses so during the day, with a Housemaster and tutor team, House Captain and Prefects, and pupils participate in the usual range of inter-house competitions and socials. The house has study rooms, lockers for storing books and belongings, and wash/changing rooms. There are common room areas with the usual entertainments and small kitchens to make drinks and snacks at break and lunchtimes.

Housemaster

Now completing his tenth year at Bloxham as a teacher of Business Studies, Robert has been the Merton Housemaster for the past two years.

Robert came to teaching late after a long career with a large corporate, living in South Africa and the Middle East and travelling extensively in Asia and South America. After a brief spell as a Professional Photographer and Marketing Consultant, Robert decided to retrain as a teacher in 2010.

Robert runs the Mini MBA programme for Lower Sixth. In addition he will be starting the Duke of Edinburgh Silver Award from September 2022, having run Bronze Duke of Edinburgh for several years. Holidays are spent in his camper van in the Scottish Highlands as he nears completing all the Scottish Munros.

Robert lives locally with his son Ryden, who has been through Bloxham from First to Sixth Form, and with his partner Cathy.
