Willersley House is home, during term time, to up to 32 girls. The original house was built in 1887 and, whilst being totally modernised to provide comfortable boarding accommodation, the house still boasts many of its original features and has rooms of assorted shapes and sizes that give it a quirky, homely feel.
Willersley House consists of three layers. Downstairs features a warm and comfortable lounge with television and DVD player, a kitchen and a drawing room. The drawing room is used for studying by the younger girls but there is also a library, games and a piano.
The bedrooms are divided over the two floors and they are a mixture of singles, doubles and triples. For the younger girls, there is also one large room with two bunk beds. All rooms have a desk, a wardrobe and a lockable cupboard for every girl.
Throughout the week, the house is supervised not only by the Housemistress and Assistant Housemistress but also by a team of Academic Visiting Tutors who teach and work at Scarborough College. The Academic Tutors help with Prep but are also there for games, activities and pastoral care during weekday evenings.
Mrs Jolene Weeda is the resident Housemistress of Willersley House. She lives in Willersley together with Mr Weeda, Maartje and Ridley. Mrs Weeda is the School Librarian and Mr Weeda is the Director of Marketing and Admissions. Maartje goes to the Scarborough College Prep School while Ridley is the Willersley House dog.
Mrs Weeda is assisted by Ms Heather Marsay who also lives in Willersley. During the day, Ms Marsay works as a Teaching Assistant in the Senior School. You can also find her on the hockey pitch.
