Ex ingeniis propriis familia floreat’ or ‘Through the gifts of each let the family flourish’ is the house motto and indeed Hatherley house has done just that since it began in 2011. Meaning ‘hawthorn clearing’ the name is very much in keeping with the pastoral theme of the other houses, but with the added local reference to the brook which is also represented on the house badge with a blue chevron. It was founded to ease the pressure on Mead house by accommodating 38 non-boarding girls.
