Fen House

Girls’ Boarding House for Years 9-13

Fen House is all about being a big family. We work on the principle that if we are kind, generous and respectful, the house will be a happy and comfortable environment for us all to live in.

  • Housemistress: Mrs Chloe Emery
  • Assistant Housemistress: Miss Victoria Otterburn
  • Matron: Mrs Jayne Hughes

Fen House is located on the west side of the school grounds, close to Great Hall. The biggest house on site, it is home to 65 girls aged 13 to 18 – “home” in the sense that the full boarders live here throughout term, whilst the home-boarders go home each night for bed and breakfast. We are a purpose-built boarding house which gives us plenty of space to live, work and relax in. The Fen Family plays a huge part in how the House is run, and the girls all take responsibilities in helping to keep the House running efficiently.

Fen encourages the development of the whole person, recognising the importance of both individual achievement and community spirit. Fen girls access all areas of the school life and are enthusiastic about enriching their lives through the opportunities on offer at The Leys, in Music, Drama, Sport, Art and outreach activities. Academically we have our share of the highest fliers in the school, and the girls work hard to keep their high expectations in sight. Fen and fun are closely related, but we’re much more than that, as you’ll see when you visit!
