What’s it like being a part of St Aidan’s?

In St. Aidan’s we pride ourselves on great relationships in the house, and supportive upper school students who help the lower school students to be part of our team. The girls meet on a Friday night and work together in teams doing activities against the other houses, which is great for their integration, teamwork and leadership skills! There are numerous activities throughout the year that involve the full house working together, most notably Fun Song and Soft Song, and many more besides including music and sports competitions, fashion shows, and of course Sports Day. The House have regular dinners together at Christmas and on our House Birthday featuring games, great food and a great time for all.

What sort of activities and events do girls experience as part of St Aidan’s?  

We usually begin with Fun Song, an absolute hair-raiser of an activity that brings the girls together working on their outrageous costumes, their fantastic dance moves and their angelic (sometimes) singing. The girls perform on a raucous night towards the end of term. Hot on the heels of this will be our Christmas event, which has varied in recent years, but again brings the girls together for a Full House competition of some kind.  This pattern then continues, and we take part in one major event each half term; this is interspersed with various smaller individual events  for which the girls can volunteer and contribute to our overall total of House Points. At the end of the year we have Sports Day, and finally we try to take the girls on a House night out, either bowling or to a restaurant to celebrate the year.

Why should girls be part of St Aidan’s?

Because it’s fun! There is much to do at Queen Margaret’s but the House system is one area where fun is prioritised above all else. The girls learn a lot from meetings, and from the amazing events they take part in, but more than anything they have a great time, let their hair down, and get to enjoy themselves with their peers and girls from other year groups. Being in St Aidan’s gives the girls a great sense of being part of a team, and there is a fantastic opportunity for them to apply for leadership positions both in year IV as monitors and later up the school as House Captains.

    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
