Excellent facilities

I love boarding. It gives me freedom and independence.”
Mathilda, Year 13

We’ve invested millions in our boarding houses over the last few years to create a contemporary home from home for our girls. And the views over Bath are pretty impressive too! Our two boarding houses are welcoming, safe, supportive and most of all fun. Praised by The Good School Guide and described as ‘chic’, our boarding accommodation is super stylish with lots of homely touches. We offer rooms for 140 girls, around one-quarter of the total student body.

Freedom to grow: ages 11-16

School House is located on the top floor of our neo-gothic Main Building. With spacious common rooms, quiet study areas and fashionable mezzanine bedrooms, our girls are supported both academically and pastorally. Walk around our beautiful grounds after school and you’ll feel the buzz of boarding life. From girls playing hockey on our all-weather pitch and sharing a joke over supper to indulging their passion for piano and painting, there’s always plenty going on at School House. Our extensive wellbeing programme means your daughter will be supported at every step of her journey through school.

Growing independent: ages 16-18

Gloucester House offers Sixth Formers an exclusive space to socialise, study and enjoy their home from home. With the choice of a single or twin study bedroom, the girls have access to comfortable communal areas, a large modern kitchen and quiet study areas. Here, girls benefit from having more independence, while still remaining an integral part of the school community. Sixth Formers are given the freedom to organise their own timetables, with structured time set aside for demanding academic work. Many take up community work and volunteering opportunities and we very much encourage our girls to enjoy the rich experiences that Bath has to offer.
