The pastoral care is fantastic. Day girls are envious of the boarders and wish they could board too, because of all the fun they have.

All girls whose parents reside overseas must have an official guardian resident within the UK and over 25 years old. This guardian is responsible for the girl’s travel and accommodation at half-terms, holidays and over the May Bank Holiday exeat weekend.

It is school policy to ask parents to take their daughter home if she becomes ill. Parents who reside overseas and are unable to do so, should make their daughter’s guardian aware that they will also have responsibility for collecting the girl and providing accommodation and care until she is fit to return to school.
