Girls' boarding house
Abi and Jonathan Blair started as Houseparents of (the new!) Grange House in September 2017. They are loving growing this new community in the heart of Monkton, getting to know the girls, and watching the girls getting to know each other.
Prior to working at Monkton Abi was working in homelessness, and was most recently running a hostel for young people as well as managing an outreach project to prevent homelessness. Jonathan has most recently been head of year, and teacher of Maths, at St. Gregory's School; just up the road. Before this the Blairs lived in a boys boarding house in Dean Close where Jonathan was the Assistant Chaplain resident tutor and Abi was a house tutor in one of the girls' houses.
The couple have three boys, Billy, Gregory and Alexander. When they're not running around after them Jonathan enjoys watching and playing (any) sport and Abi enjoys trying to keep fit running up and down the canal! They also stay involved with running their local church's youth group.
Abi and Jonathan define their vision for the girls of Grange house as 'fostering bold and passionate young women, equipped to thrive in an ever-changing global community, proud of who they are and driving themselves to use the gifts they have been given to their full potential'.
