Rowling Boarding

Welcome to Rowling House

Welcome to Rowling House which is a boarding house that looks after girls from Year 7 to11. Rowling house boards 84 girls from different nationalities which creates a very nice atmosphere, allowing girls the opportunity to gain knowledge about other cultures.

Within vertical boarding, students can join together from various year groups which inspires our older students to be positive role models for the younger students throughout the year. This in return will hopefully create a homely and friendly boarding environment.

Our boarding house has space for students to relax and socialise with each other as well as space for down time. Within our boarding house each student has a mentor that they are able to talk to, but we encourage the girls to talk to any member of staff.

Rowling house aims to support and encourage girls to enjoy school and boarding life and to make the most of all of the opportunities provided for them.
