New Hall

Lee Summers (3)New Hall was the 6th Boarding house to be opened at the College in 1967. New Hall is not named after a historical figure but does have a claim to fame with Margaret Thatcher, who was the Minister of Education at the time, touring New Hall on her visit to the College in 1967. 

Back in 1995 my journey at Wymondham College started. As a local boy from Robert Kett Junior School in Wymondham I was nervous and a little worried about the challenges of ‘big school’ and how I was ever going to find my way around such a massive site. My worries were unjustified. The boarding house staff are warm, welcoming and friendly and whether you are a day or boarding student, they are always there should you need them. Our students are caring, helpful and what makes New Hall a fun and vibrant place to work. I want to make New Hall as student focused as possible and am keen to drive forward the musical, sporting, academic and pastoral achievements of all our students so that they achieve their very best. I returned to Wymondham College as a Resident Fellow after my university and travelling days were over and then qualified as a PE teacher in 2012. I live on site with my wife who teaches Geography also at the College, our children and dog Archie. I am keen to watch, play or coach sport.
