Stratton House is a busy and thriving purpose built boarding house which opened in 1987, housing our senior girls in Years 10-13.
In Stratton we aim to create a stable and happy atmosphere which feels like home. If the girls feel happy and secure within a caring environment then they should perform well in the classroom. Each girl is valued as an individual and we look for their strengths and encourage them to try new things whether it be music, drama or sport, to build upon.
We have approximately 60 girls in the House and, to aid the staff, we have a team of excellent Prefects: a Head of House; Deputy Head of House; and four Prefects which promotes reliability and teaches the importance of teamwork. The Prefect Team help with the organisation of events and are a valuable asset to the smooth running of the House.
At various times throughout the year we have House activities such as the annual Easter Egg Hunt, Summer BBQ’s, DVD and pizza nights, along with the ever popular pancake evening. Everyone also looks forward to our boarding Christmas Dinner when the Prefects award the much coveted “Paper Plate Awards”.
Mrs Knapman has a wealth of boarding experience and is much loved and respected by all in the House.
She understands that a sense of humour is vital but also the caring, listening approach is essential too! For many it is their first experience of being away from home and it is vital we all work together to provide the best possible start. All the girls are encouraged to become self-confident, responsible young ladies who will be a credit to themselves and those around them.
We look forward to welcoming you to Stratton to see for yourselves our 'home from home'.
Mrs J Knapman
