A House system runs upwards through the school, uniting girls of all ages in each of four houses and giving every girl a feeling of belonging from the beginning of their time at school.
As a member of Burton (Beryl Burton), Ferrier (Kathleen Ferrier), Hepburn (Audrey Hepburn) or Stark (Freya Stark) girls in the Senior School form friendships, learn teamwork, try out new skills and enjoy a good deal of healthy competition and fun.
There are individual House charities, chosen by the girls and which receive money from that House’s fundraising activities. The House charities for 2017-18 are:
- Burton – The Lily Foundation (fighting mitochondrial disease)
- Ferrier – A21 (working to eradicate modern day slavery)
- Hepburn – Maggie’s (cancer care)
- Stark – Sponsor Stars (helping deprived children in the UK)
