Jubilee House opened in September 2013 and is flourishing. With our founding Fourth Form and Shells having reached the Upper and Lower Sixth, we are now a friendly community of some 60 pupils.
e have all worked hard over the last years to make Jubilee a welcoming space with its own identity and I hope we have succeeded in starting a Jubilee family which can only continue to grow.
In the Shells, Fourths and Fifths the girls share in rooms of two boarders – or two boarders and one day girl – and all our Sixth Form girls have single rooms situated around our fabulous atrium with their own en suite bathrooms. We have swapped our one dog for two cats and our small new House for a large welcoming one. Our girls have excelled in all aspects of school life: we had a large cohort of twenty girls singing and playing in a concert in aid of Vale House recently – boding well for House singing competitions!
Having a full House has seen our first members of 1st team games. This year we had three representatives in the 1st XI hockey, two in the 1st rowing quad and three girls in the 1st VI tennis.
All last year’s Upper Sixth leavers have gone on to their first choice universities and of recent leavers, one is studying Law at Cambridge and one social sciences at Columbia in New York. In Jubilee we feel a happy, supported girl will excel at her studies and we go out of our way to ensure this is the case. Please contact the Admissions Team to book a tour of St Edward’s and our wonderful boarding house.
