School House

School House – Semper ad coelestia (Always unto the heavens)

School House is located on the top floor of the Meynell Building, just a few strides from the Chapel door and nestling on the edge of the athletics track. The house was completely refurbished in 2007 and this detached location enables us to have plenty of space in a relaxed environment. The short stroll across from school is ideal for clearing the head and forgetting the troubles that have occurred in school. Bizarrely though, success seems to bridge the gap and come over with us!

"A great sense of belonging, loads of support from girls across all years when doing house events.
