Years I-IV - Chatter, fun and friendship
Coming in September, Warwick House will be our new accommodation for students in Years I-IV. Students will live with others of their own age, yet have the opportunity to socialise with all girls in Years I-IV as part of the lively Warwick House community in the heart of the school.
Warwick House Boarding
Warwick House will be our accommodation for students in Years I-IV, offering a busy boarding community right in the heart of the school. Girls will live with others of their own age groups in two separate but joined wings of the House.
Whether girls stay for one night a week, or for the whole term as part of our Bespoke Boarding options, they will be part of a lively community where friendships between the year groups can easily be fostered.
Warwick House Wings
Warwick House will be the collective name for two separate but joined wings inside the main school building. Students will live in dorms with others of their own age and have the chance to make friends across the younger year groups.
Scarborough Wing | Years I-III
Scarborough Wing will be our boarding accommodation for Years I-III.
Years I and II will share dorms together and have their own dedicated common room.
Year III girls will have their own dorms and a dedicated common room.
Atholl Wing | Year IV
Year IV students will live together in Atholl Wing. They will share dorms as a year group and also have a dedicated common room.
What will boarding in Warwick House be like?
Busy: Years I-IV will be housed under one roof, meaning on any given evening we can expect Warwick House to be thriving with a great mix of boarders. Whether girls board all week or any other number of nights per week under our Bespoke Boarding options, they will be joining a thriving community of students with evening and weekend activities, the chance to socialise, and the time to study.
Horizontal Boarding: We have seen first-hand the immense benefits that horizontal boarding brings to our junior boarders, and the quality of the friendships that girls develop. Boarding in Warwick House means girls will live within their own age group, yet have the chance to socialise with girls in other years.
Convenient: A central base for our girls means they can easily pop back to their dorms to retrieve books needed for the rest of the day. Sports participation will also be easier as changing facilities will be provided within Warwick House itself.
Supportive: House staff and Senior Tutors will be based in Warwick House, ensuring that the key support staff for the girls are close by and easily accessible.
Inspirational: Girls in Years III and IV will have the chance to take positions of responsibility as School Monitors and House Monitors. This will allow Year I and II girls to learn the values of school from the girls in the year groups above them.
Boarding Culture: We offer nurturing support for all of our boarders, in particular the youngest of our students. There are many favourite traditions including evening toast with house staff, ‘fairy lights’ before bedtime, ‘birthday whispers’, and more.
House Staff and Senior Tutors
Each wing of Warwick House will be supported by dedicated house staff, meaning every student will have immediate access to the advice, support or assistance they need. Each wing will have its own Assistant Housemistress and Graduate Assistant. There will also be a Senior Tutor co-located in each House.
