Rich Owlett is the Housemaster of Holmcroft House. He has run boarding houses at Millfield since 2010 and prior to Holmcroft ran Millfield House. The house team seek to create a warm environment where boys treat each other with respect. Food and fun are high on the list of priorities, so BBQ's, nachos and cakes are a regular feature of Holmcroft life, as are a wide range of trips and events.
Rich worked in industry for 17 years before becoming a teacher in 2003. At Millfield he teaches Business Studies and is a rugby coach and also coached sailing for a number of years. He has organised a huge range of trips covering a diverse range of interests from sky diving to topical debates. He frequently hosts dinners for local politicians and business people to enable pupils to have direct exposure to relevant people from a wide circle of backgrounds.
His wife Jen studied Agricultural and Countryside Management at university and has lived in New Zealand, Switzerland, Greece and the UK.
Rich has two sons, Jack and Archie, and Jen and Rich have two daughters, Maddy and Fizzy. They have two family dogs - a spaniel called Oakley and a pointer called Teddy. In their spare time Rich and Jen like to travel, spend time with their children and enjoy outdoor pursuits including sailing, boating and walking, in addition to music, pubs and good food.
Rich and Jen are committed to producing well balanced young men who know what they want to do in the world and have a plan to achieve their goals and ambitions. Being polite, kind, thoughtful, honest and considerate are valued highly, and getting the basics right is the first step along the way.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Holmcroft family.
