Boarding Houses

DAILY LIFE junior house

Every girl joining Westonbirt will be assigned to a House – Badminton, Dorchester or Holford. Each house includes day girls and boarders from across the year groups. The houses pride themselves on their competitive spirit and enjoy participating in regular inter-house competitions. They also look forward to their house outings, when they get together to celebrate their successes.

Year 7 and 8 boarders live in our junior boarding house, Beaufort. This gives them two years to settle in among their peer group before joining their respective senior boarding houses.

There are three senior boarding houses Badminton, Dorchester and Holford, all of which are accommodated in the main house with their own drawing room, laundry facilities and kitchen. Our recently refurbished dormitories offer a wonderful opportunity to live in a beautiful 19th Century house with many original features with all the benefits of updated and comfortable furnishings.

The dormitories are arranged according to age and every girl has her own area with a lockable bedside cabinet, under bed storage and wardrobe space.

The Sixth Form remains affiliated to the three houses but have their own study bedrooms in a dedicated building.
