An Exeter girl knows her own mind, and is usually determined and motivated – yet the House cherishes kindness, as exemplified by its motto: “Show consideration for others, and respect for yourself.”
Key words at Exeter are "respect" and "balance". We place great importance on the way students treat one another, encouraging the girls to see the house as an extended family where everyone is accepted and valued.
The girls of Exeter look upon one another as sisters. A dynamic, welcoming place, Exeter has a strong House identity and loyalty to its traditions.
This sisterly feeling finds its expression in many fun ways, too: Saturday nights will often see girls and Houseparents in their pyjamas enjoying a movie together, cupcake baking (and eating) is a popular pastime, as is Wii Dance. The girls apply their talent for fun to helping others, too, often holding quizzes and dance competitions to raise money for charity.
Exeter Houseparent & French teacher
Mr Crew and his wife Sarah joined Aiglon from Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz. He loves the combination of teaching and Houseparenting at Exeter, and is “a strong believer in the importance and value of learning languages in an increasingly international world”. Mr Crew has a background in swimming, and swam long-distance for Great Britain in the past. He also counts trail running, surfing, skiing and snowboarding among his hobbies, and says it is “great fun being involved in boarding life”.
Ms Crew is a Houseparent at Exeter alongside her husband Adam – prior to this they were Houseparents at Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz for five years. She initially trained as a primary school teacher and has since had a broad and varied career working with children of all ages all over the world. “I hope I am an inspiring role model for my students,” says Ms Crew, who is also a mother of three children. “Key words for me are respect for everyone and balance in all things.”
