You should come to visit Arion House, the current holders of “Overall House Cup” and meet the committed and energetic girls who, by their sheer determination and dedication, achieved this accolade by partaking fully in every opportunity which came their way.
Drama, Music, Sport, Arts; every girl contributes to the life of this vibrant house and in so doing, develops skills and discovers dormant talents. Consisting of 36 girls, Arion is the smallest girls’ house and this helps to maintain the family atmosphere of which we are so proud; to quote a student,
Arion is not just a home, it’s a family and I have made friends for Life.
Arion girls genuinely care for each other, encouraging each other in everything they do and bring a listening ear when necessary. Their team spirt is exemplary, taking part is what matters and helping each other to achieve, being interested in and enjoying each other’s success.
The house is situated on the High Street with its garden behind, which provides access to all the other school buildings. Because of its position there are splendid views across the School to the hills beyond and the well-known Dovecote. It’s fun to cross the river to reach one’s lessons too!
In our free time we enjoy a variety of activities in house, including cooking, films, games, BBQ’s, karaoke and nacho nights. Birthdays are special times and we love to celebrate in style! There are some annual highlights too – notably a Beach Trip in the Summer Term which includes fish and chips, and the end of the year jaunt to Bath to ‘Jimmy’s’ all you can eat!
