The hub of the Lower School, 1st and 2nd Forms, is Queen Mary House (QMH), an historic, impressive and family-oriented building with Mr Andrade as Housemaster. His vocation is to ensure that school life in and around the House is the best introduction into senior school, with everyone’s well-being a core focus. Both day and boarding pupils congregate in the lovely main entrance every morning and at lunch time for registration and notices. At break and lunchtime, pupils may return the House. Matron is always on hand.
Mr Andrade joined King Edward’s and our partner Prep School and Nursery, Barrow Hills in 2013. His partner, Ms Withers, along with their three children Juliet, Felicity and Eloise, will be moving into QMH with him. The family is complete with their Labrador Agatha (known as Aggie).
Mr Andrade started at King Edward’s as a resident tutor in QMH, and held the position of Assistant Housemaster of Senior boys House Wakefield for three years before taking the role as QMH Housemaster in January 2021. Mr Andrade also teaches Geography and Science at our partner school Barrow Hills, and will continue this in his role as Housemaster.
Mr Andrade grew up in Surrey and attended Aldro Prep, before moving onto Cranleigh School, boarding at both Schools. He went on to complete his A-levels at Godalming College before studying at the University of York in Environmental, Economics and Ecology and then completed his PGCE in Secondary Science at Oxford Brookes.
