What’s it like being a part of School House?

School House was the first house to be created when the school was opened in 1901. There are now six houses which compete through academic, sporting and artistic achievement not forgetting all the fun competitions that are developed and added  throughout the year. Every girl belongs to a ‘House’ and is supported and works with girls across all year groups. A strong allegiance develops for the house and its members; girls celebrate birthdays and achievements and support each other’s personal or charitable ventures.

What sort of activities and events do girls experience as part of School House?  

Each House has a regular Friday meeting where games are played, achievements applauded and events are planned. Across the year there are competitions such as: – Fun Song, Soft Song, Masterchef, Sporting competitions, Charity fashion shows and events,

We have a special Formal House Dinner once a year where we invite a speaker; past Speakers have included Paul Hall (Olympic Gymnastics Coach) and Rebecca Stephens (First British Woman to the top of Everest). We have also chosen to have themed Dinners such as Alice in Wonderland, where everyone had to climb through the rabbit hole to get to the dinner and dress accordingly. Lots of fun is assured!  At Christmas we usually join Pithlochry and have a dinner and a Scottish Reel with a live band

Why should girls be part of School House?

House activities are compulsory but through the years events girls gain camaraderie with their peers and girls across the whole school, they may have to join in events that wouldn’t be there first choice but be pleasantly surprised at how fun they can be when experienced with friends.

    Soft Song 2017

    Soft Song is the antithesis of Fun Song. Of course, that is not to say that it isn’t fun, rather that the criteria of the competition are about the quality of singing and communication. There is not a year that goes by where the girls do not exceed my expectations (to quote a well-loved School
