The team of staff in Roslyn House, led by Housemistress Mrs Maureen Crone, strives to maintain a happy and relaxed atmosphere in which every girl can feel at home. We provide a secure and caring environment in which girls feel valued within the Roslyn community whilst developing their ability to work within a supportive team. The qualities of caring, courtesy, communication, and co-operation are consistently emphasized. We have 70 girls in the house aged between 13 and 18. Every girl is assigned a tutor, who monitors academic progress. We have three house rules: Honesty, Endeavour, and Respect.
A major strength of the house is the friendly rapport that exists between the year groups and the different nationalities that we have in the house.
The Sixth Form is very sociable and more than willing to spend time talking to pupils from the younger year groups. The Roslyn House Concert and House Dinner are annual events organised during the year by the girls for their parents and peers. Roslyn has the reputation of being a happy and purposeful house. The Head of House and the prefects are a vital link; they are expected to lead by example, to be ever-vigilant, and take special care with matters of the girls in the house. Roslyn girls are all involved in sport, music, debating and are very competitive.
The Housemistress lives in Roslyn Lodge attached to the House with her husband Bernard, who is the Deputy Bursar, their three children James, Alicia and Monica, who all attended Wrekin College and have now graduated from university.
There is certainly never a dull moment in Roslyn House. There is an open-door policy and staff are available to the girls at all times.
Maureen and her family moved to Wrekin in 2000, prior to this they had lived at Rannoch School in Perthshire. Maureen studied mathematics through the Open University and completed her degree when she moved to Shropshire. She joined the teaching staff in 2004 and was a tutor in Clarkson house, then Deputy Housemistress in Tudor House. In 2008 she took up the position of Housemistress in Roslyn House, a position which she thoroughly enjoys and finds very rewarding.
Her main interests are singing with Telford and Wrekin singers, knitting, entertaining friends and spending time in their home in Scotland.
