Year V - feel calmed by the tranquil, natural setting


You can’t help but feel calmed by the tranquil, natural setting of Winifred Holtby House, affectionately known as Winnie’s. Here girls share a spacious dorm with three others and have a dedicated study room directly opposite.

Named after an Old Margaretian who was a famous journalist and author, Winnie’s is a modern purpose-built three storey boarding house for Year V girls. With a comfortable common room equipped with a TV and kitchen, this is a versatile space ideal for getting together on an evening and relaxing whilst catching up with one another.

Offering students a level of independence, each floor has its own kitchenette, enabling girls to make themselves simple snacks and the all-important cup of tea and toast before bed. Outside Winnie’s there is a delightful picnic area, two tennis courts and a wonderful view of the School gardens.

Boarding makes a particularly strong contribution to pupils' social development: they build strong supportive relationships with fellow boarders that sustain them during their time at School.
