The School was officially opened with a small group of girls at 6 Upper Baker Street on Tuesday 1st October 1878, so tomorrow is our official School Birthday!

Today we are celebrating this momentous occasion with a jam-packed day of activities! As is tradition, the birthday cake was cut by the oldest girl and youngest girl in the School, India and Xanthe. The morning of birthday celebrations has been followed by our annual Sponsored Walk around Regent’s Park in a spectacular array of costumes, with everything from Disney-themed Thirds to the Sixth Form honouring their favourite childhood characters, all joined (of course) by our four-legged canine friends.

Happy Birthday FHS, and here’s to the next one (and many more)!
