In Dennett House, a strong work ethic and commitment to academic success is combined with a fun, creative and stimulating environment. Boarders enjoy a wide range of activities, excursions, social events and voluntary work. We promote the all-round personal development of our girls and encourage them in their ambitions for the future.
Our staff know the specific challenges that arise during these important examination years and are on hand to provide support and guidance. Girls are given an excellent preparation for university, chosen careers and the changing world.
Today’s Dennett girls are tomorrow’s leaders. Our aim is for our girls to leave Dennett ready to face the world as strong, confident individuals, with a lively sense of team spirit. Friendships are founded on happy memories of shared experiences, in these important transitional years into adulthood.
