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.

 

Meet the Head of House – Verity Edwards

Hi, I am Verity. My A Level subjects are English, Psychology and Art. I am hoping to study Politics and Sociology at university and continue to a career in Law. I am in 3rds Hockey as well as the school’s charity action group.

Within Hatherley, I am a bubbly character who is always happy to chat to anyone if needed. Hatherley is a closely knit House, where you are encouraged to flourish in whatever your areas are, be they Drama, Academics, Art, Music or Sport. I have been given amazing opportunities to represent the House during my time here: in House sporting competitions, House public speaking and House singing, which at times have been out of my comfort zone(!) but as a House we are extremely supportive and doing such things have allowed me to develop as a person.
