Oakthorpe House

Welcome to Oakthorpe!


n Oakthorpe we value friendship, individuality and creativity, and we motivate one another to succeed in all areas of school life. Oakthorpe is a warm and caring house and is considered a second home by most, if not all, of the girls in the boarding House.

Below you can watch a film that takes you on a virtual tour of some of the Boarding Houses including Oakethorpe, and you can read more about the House from the pupils below.

Our house staff are fabulous, and always strive to bring out the best in all the girls in Oakthorpe. We also have support from the rest of the Oakthorpe team: Our wonderful Matrons, who are lovely and make us tasty treats every day and cake night once a week, which is a real treat; Miss Mackrell (our fantastic Resident Tutor) who brightens our day; along with our amazing House Tutors who each have a specific year group to look after and help with school life. They all make the House such a loving and welcoming environment to live in and we feel as though we are able to go and talk to any of them when we are upset, homesick or just want a chat! We all understand that it can be hard moving into a new boarding school away from home and we’re always here for each other as well.
