House motto: ex ingeniis propriis familia floreat (in the gifts of each, let the family flourish)
WHAT’S IT LIKE IN HATHERLEY?
Despite being one of the smallest Houses, Hatherley is lively, vibrant, buzzy and not easily overlooked! The girls enjoy a special sisterly bond, and the House has a real family feel, in which individuals are encouraged to feel supported to excel in their specialist areas, or simply just to try something new. The House has an excellent work ethic, and academic studies are taken seriously, but equally, the girls love to then don a purple shirt and represent the House in team competitions, from chess to hockey to debating; we are certainly competitive! Hatherley girls are fully involved in all areas of school life, and our motto ‘ex ingeniis propriis familia floreat’ (in the gifts of each let the family flourish), embodies our aim to value each individual as unique in what they bring to our lovely House.
