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: Bella Moss

Hatherley is one of the smallest houses in the school, but this makes us just like a big family. We are a close knit group, who support one another through everyone’s individual talents and passions, and we love to build friendships across the year groups. Despite being small, we have a wide range of strengths and enjoy competing in all the house competitions, from sports, to debating, to music. One of the highlights of the Hatherley year is ‘House Shout’, where we all come together to sing and dance for the annual singing competition. Despite being a very competitive house, we also love taking part and trying something new that we have never done before.

During my time at Dean Close, I have loved being part of the Hatherley family and creating amazing memories from all the exciting activities in which we have taken part. I have also really valued the support of our House Mistress, Mrs Milne. She is always there for a chat, or to ask for advice, and is always our loudest supporter in everything we do! She holds Hatherley together, knows us each as individuals and really cares for all the girls here.
