Elizabeth House

Elizabeth House came into being in 1955 and is named in honour of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, who succeeded Queen Mary as President of Bridewell Royal Hospital. The Queen Mother was President from 1953 to 2002 during which time she made four visits to the School (1958, 1965, 1976 and 1994). One of these visits was on 2 November 1976 to open the new boarding Houses, built to accommodate the growing boarding population.

Elizabeth House is a boarding and day girls’ House from 3rd Form to Lower Sixth Form, ages 13 to 17 and is paired with Wakefield boy’s House.

Housemistress Mrs Harman

Mrs Harman knows all the pupils well, not only through her House role but through teaching Economics at the School since 2007. Mrs. Harman believes that a boarding house should be a safe and friendly place where you work hard, relax, socialise and enjoy yourself. She believes that all members of the House have something to contribute whether on the academic, sporting, cultural or social front, or a combination of all these. Mrs Harman lives in Elizabeth House with her husband Nick, and their daughter Kiera who goes to our partner prep school Barrow Hills. Together they help create a genuine family atmosphere in the House.

In my first year everyone was so welcoming, everyone was so kind and I made some really quick friends. It’s just the ambience of… you do your prep, you go downstairs and it’s like having another family. It’s honestly been an eye-opening experience for me because I’ve never had to live with people my own age before. So you learn the rules and the routine and everything like that and it’s been amazing. Just like a familial community.
