Severn (Boarding, Girls)
Senior girls aged 14 to 18 years.
Severn is a place for you to grow and learn to be a creative, honest and kind young woman. We will work together on these qualities, and as a house, it is important for us all to be respected members of our Kingham community and the wider communities that we are a part of.
To be creative doesn’t mean you have to be arty (I am certainly not gifted in that area!) but it means that you are an individual with many gifts and talents that you can share with others, and we want to encourage you to do that as you live here. Being creative will also give you plenty of opportunities to have a lot of fun while you’re here...
To be honest is a quality that will stand by you for the rest of your life; we will all go through ups and downs in life but if we can be honest with our feelings, thoughts and actions then we will have respect for one another and try to bring the best out of each other.
To be kind is something you have probably been told from a young age, but acts of kindness go a long way in building a positive community to live in and I hope that will be something that we do for each other on a regular basis.
I also think Severn has the best view on the Hill overlooking the main sports pitches and located close to the main school buildings; it means you will have a short commute to chapel at the start of the day!
