What it’s like to live in Howard House (Year II)
Howard House offers a safe, comfortable environment where there is always something happening and where the girls are constantly occupied. Situated in a unique position, with enviable aspects from all of the dormitories, Howard House has a very homely ambience where it is easy to relax. The House offers an appropriate transition into life in the Main School – something the girls very much look forward to, as they are now able to socialise with the senior year groups, maturing in a respectful environment.
The daily routine takes the girls away from the House, to their common room for Registration, to their book room to prepare for the day’s lessons or maybe to the Dining Hall to enjoy the culinary delights on offer. Coming home to Howard House really does signify the end of the day’s lessons, Prep and their academic routine. Now is the time for relaxing, socialising, reading, and discussion, providing a time to develop and expand one’s circle of friends from across the year group.
At all times, Howard House has a purposeful, nurturing atmosphere which is unassailable, in which caring for one another is not only commonplace, but expected by all who live there. Supporting each other in this way helps to forge lifelong friendships which help to endure almost anything.
