Mr James Bourne, Head of Boarding

It gives me great pleasure to announce the appointment of Mr James Bourne as Head of Boarding.

James commenced working at The Hutchins School in May of 2017 and immediately made a positive impact with his colleagues and the boys in his classes. James came to us from Melbourne Grammar School, where he was the Head of Design and Technology and a Senior Boarding Tutor in a boarding house of 114 boys. During his six years’ living and working in boarding at Melbourne Grammar School, James implemented study routines for students to ensure their academic studies were on track, he also implemented a Mindfulness program to promote positive wellbeing. James believes the pastoral care of boys is fundamental in education and he strives to create a happy, secure and supportive environment where every boy feels included, valued and respected.

James, together his wife Jo, two boys, Oliver (Year 4) and Harry (Year 6) and daughter, Cerys (Kinder at Collegiate), are looking forward to living on campus and embracing boarding life at our School.

I congratulate James on his appointment and welcome him to his new role as Head of Boarding.

Dr Rob McEwan
