“As Housemistress of Longfield House my role is to ensure that the girls are happy, well cared for and fully engaged in all aspects of the school and the boarding community, both academically and socially. Along with my husband and two young children we aim to promote a family environment in which the girls thrive, have fun and flourish into confident, well rounded individuals. The hope is that once the girls leave Longfield, they will have acquired skills and learned values that help them throughout their lives.” – Mrs Burgess

Longfield House was completed in 1987 to meet growing demand among girl boarders, who currently number around 55. It faces the school playing fields, between Prep School and Senior School. The accommodation is of a very high standard. The majority of girls share a double bedroom and Sixth Formers have their own private study bedrooms. There are three very comfortable common rooms and a fully fitted kitchen. All girls have access to the internet within the house and also have the use of the fitness suite, squash courts, music school, the sports hall, the Astroturf and the swimming pool (supervised).
