Meet The Heads
Mrs Roosha, Headmistress of Eaton House The Manor Pre-Preparatory School, which takes boys from 4-8, and Mrs Sarah Segrave, Headmistress of Eaton House The Manor Preparatory School, which takes boys from 8-13, work together very closely, creating a seamless transition from Eaton House The Manor Pre-Prep to the Prep.
Roosha Sue started her journey at Eaton House the Manor in 2001 in the Pre-Prep, so returning here at the start of 2020 and overseeing the Pre-Prep along with the Nursery, really felt like coming home. She has had the pleasure of getting to know hundreds of families over the years and nurturing the children’s characters ready for the exciting educational journey ahead. Really getting to know each child is how to make a difference, which is what I aim to do. This is an essential ethos, not only for myself but I also impress this on my wonderful team of teachers.
Miss Roosha has two children of her own, who both attended Eaton House the Manor Nursery. They now go to local schools, closer to home in Wallington. Being a parent and a working mother helps to understand the pressures of life not only for our parents but also the impact of this on our boys. We want to raise boys to be resilient, confident and happy. By focusing on these three key areas the foundation is firmly set for facilitating some fantastic academic achievements.
Mrs Sarah Segrave has been headmistress of Eaton House The Manor Prep School and director of education for the Eaton House Schools Group since 2016. She was educated at Cranbrook School in Kent before moving on to Durham University, where she gained her BA (Ed) in Education. Following that, she attended The Institute of Education in London, where she gained an MA in History.
Mrs Segrave is married to Nick, who is the IT manager for Eaton House Schools, and they have two children, both at Eaton House The Manor. She joined the school in 1993 as a history and Latin teacher, before taking on the headship of Eaton House The Manor Pre-Preparatory School in 2001, and Eaton House The Manor Girls' School in 2008.
According to Mrs Segrave, an outstanding education is one where teachers are emotionally connected with their pupils and where the relationships between the staff, pupils and parents are bound in a common sense of purpose. She wants Eaton House The Manor to combine rigorous academics with a warm and happy atmosphere.
It is of vital importance to her that every boy is known and noticed and for all the boys to 'look up and out' and play an active role in the school and wider community.
