School House

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

School House is a Girls’ house, located in the Main Building, which gives our pupils plenty of space in a relaxed environment.

Housemistress Paula Parkinson says:

“The short stroll to School House is ideal for clearing the head - 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.
