The House

The Combermere is the only in-College boarding house for girls – being situated in a central position it has easy access to the library, dining-hall, music school and all social areas of the college. In addition to its unique location, the house is recognised for its fun, energetic and friendly atmosphere. The Combermere throws itself wholeheartedly into all aspects of school life – being a consistent front-runner in all house events it undoubtedly carries one of the most lively and envied spirits in the college. The central common room is a focal point of the house and facilitates the natural integration between the years along with creating the warm, hard-working and fun environment under which all the girls flourish. Whilst the house thrives under the healthy competitiveness of the school, the Combermere has established itself as a relaxing sanctuary created by the friendliness of both the staff and the pupils.
