Meet the Housemistress...
Anita Wyatt took over from Naomi Pritchard as Housemistress of Mary Sidney Hall at the start of the Michaelmas Term 2019.
Before joining Shrewsbury School, Anita was the Pastoral Lead for over 170 students at the Marches Academy Sixth Form in Oswestry. She has diverse experience in guiding and supporting young people, as well as working closely and proactively with their families.
A qualified teacher of Art, Anita previously lectured in Art and Design at Shrewsbury College. She has also worked in children’s’ publishing, in executive recruitment and as an assistant theatrical agent in London. She is a freelance illustrator and has worked in set design for various theatre productions.
She is a ‘keen’ distance runner (albeit slow) and a qualified athletics and running coach. In her teens, she was an obsessive equestrian rider and competed regularly at area level in cross country and show jumping.
Anita met her husband, Dave, at university and they have two children, Mia and Massimo, who join Shrewsbury School as pupils. The fifth member of their family is their beautiful whippet, Zibibbo.
