Welcome to Northdown House. We opened our doors in September 2008 as the new junior girls' boarding house, catering for girls from years 7-9, and provide a caring, homely boarding environment.

My husband Damien and I have a young daughter, Niamh, a baby son, Alfie, and a chocolate Labrador called Coco, and we have been looking after the girls since the House opened in 2008, along with our very efficient House Matron, Mrs Bob.

We firmly believe that the girls in our care enjoy a secure, friendly and happy living environment which encourages the development of well balanced and confident young ladies.

We see the girls in Northdown as an extension of our family and, indeed, Niamh believes them all to be her big sisters!

The girls in the House enjoy a wide range of activities at evenings and weekends including beauty evenings, pizza and movie nights, barbeques, days out to the beach or Center Parcs, to name a few.

Northdown is a warm and welcoming boarding house and we would be delighted to show you around and introduce you to our extended family.

Old Vic & Northdown Go To Center Parcs


A Barbecue for our New Boarders
On Friday 14
th June both the Old Vicarage and Northdown Boarding Houses opened their doors to the Year 7, 8 and 9 pupils who will be joining the thriving boarding community of Warminster School in September 2013.
The barbecue was held in the garden of the Old Vicarage Boarding House and it gave the new pupils an opportunity to meet the current boarders, House Staff and House Parents before they formally join us at the start of the new academic year. 
Northdown girls to Studland

On the morning of Sunday 9th June, we woke up to a bright blue sky and headed off to Studland Bay for our annual beach trip. We soon settled on the beach and some of the braver members of the house ran straight into the chilly sea. Others spent their time building sandcastles with the help of Niamh and Alfie or simply relaxing in the sun.

We enjoyed our picnic lunch, whilst watching some of the girls pull Mr Crinion along the sand in a giant game of tug or war. Then followed a seaweed fight, the year 7 girls versus Mr Crinion, who was the clear winner! Just before leaving the beach, we all sang happy birthday to Clara, and shared her delicious cake.

As we were heading back to the bus, we got our traditional ice creams and had our group photo in front of the sea. It was a lovely day and thank you to Mr and Mrs Crinion and Mrs Bob for taking us.
