Outside of Rendcomb Mr Silverthorn is a keen photographer and somewhat of an adrenaline junkie, in particular water sports.
“Rendcomb has such a unique family feel, in that it’s slightly detached from the busy world around it. It provides such an amazing space to study and breed creativity.”
Mr Silverthorn favourite boarding activities are the ‘Task Master’ nights, based around the hit comedy TV show, which see pupils complete different tasks as innovatively as possible against one another.
“My aim as a houseparent is to help students find a balance between studying and downtime. While results at this time are important their happiness, both educationally and personally, are equally so.”
