West Town was founded in 1991, as a House solely for day girls. In West Town it is hoped that all girls will reach their potential and will strive for excellence. Leadership and teamwork are prioritised, with the girls given many opportunities to organise events, activities and House competitions in a large variety of sports, drama, art, music, singing and debating. Girls are encouraged to take part in a large variety of new and familiar activities to help find their strengths and weaknesses, embrace an all-round education, broaden their horizons and develop new skills and friendships.
All Third Formers get the chance to have a sleep over in the House Hall in the first few weeks and there are outings to the theatre, cinema and restaurants. A great sense of pride in the House and an excellent work ethic pervades every year group, with many of our girls obtaining high grades and accepting offers to top universities. While our girls are very competitive and extremely successful, they are also tremendously supportive of one another.
