We are so excited that our brand new Sixth Form Centre, Linhope House, has opened and is now being enjoyed by the Lower and Upper Sixth!

Linhope House has undergone a £5 million investment and been transformed into an innovative 16+ education hub with flexible space and integrated technology to encourage collaboration and self-directed learning. This unique building combines an elegant, Georgian exterior and traditional features such as The Reading Room with state of the art facilities including a Think Lab, private soundproof booths and collaborative learning and study spaces, providing the perfect transition between school and university.

Student voice has been key in the design of Linhope House and our current students had significant input into the design of the interior, where natural materials, cool colours and abundant natural light have resulted in a calm and serene Scandinavian-style decor. The Common Room features a bio-farm plant wall, known to increase wellbeing, productivity, and attention spans, creating the ideal environment for Sixth Form learning.

Increasing the dedicated Sixth Form space by 300%, with an extra 663sqm at Linhope House, has enabled the School building at Ivor Place to grow by adding a new science laboratory, English, IT and Geography facilities, thereby benefiting the younger year groups too.  The close proximity of Linhope House to Ivor Place, just two minutes away, ensures that the Sixth Form will gain a level of independence but retain their important roles as pastoral ambassadors and leadership role models for the younger girls.

We look forward to seeing the Upper Fifth, along with prospective new students, at our Sixth Form Open Evening on Wednesday 21st September, where there will be the opportunity to tour Linhope House and speak to our new Headmistress Mrs Woodcock and our Heads of Department, as well as our Head Girl’s Team.
