Welcome to Ivy House the junior girls boarding house.
We provide a caring and homely boarding house with a strong family atmosphere and 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 view the girls in Ivy House as an extension of our own family and our children Niamh and Alfie along with our Labradors Coco and Honey, certainly believe they have a house full of big sisters!
Our extremely efficient Matron, Mrs Humpherson aka Mrs Bob, looks after the administrative side of the house and offers pastoral support to the girls during the school day, whilst Mrs Vallings ably assists her on Saturday mornings and Mondays.
The girls in the house enjoy a wide range of social activities in evenings and at weekends. Activities include weekends away to Weymouth, beauty nights, pizza nights, trips to London to see the X Factor live show, barbecues, days at Center Parcs, Mr Crinion’s famous potato wedges on cold winter evenings and trips to the beach to name a few!
Ivy House is a warm and welcoming home and we would be delighted to introduce you to our lively house!
