From the Head of House
‘I challenge anyone to name another House that is so open, caring, lively and happy. We’re a family and we all care for each other and that’s what counts.’ Lula Goldsmith
Throughout my time in Stanhope I have learnt the values of living in a community. As Stanhopians we pride ourselves on having a warm and welcoming environment, where everyone can flourish in their own unique way. Everyone loves to get involved in anything and everything so our House is very diverse. We all work together and support each other, reaping the rewards as a united House. We don't just succeed on the sports field, but across all realms, including on the stage, in the classroom and in the music practice rooms.
Living in Stanhope foments a great sense of House Spirit, and we are connected across the various year groups as a whole. This provides strong support between each Stanhopian as there is always someone to turn to, should the need arise.
Our House Staff establish a great network between Teachers and Stoics, providing us with an excellent balance of pastoral care and instruction. I feel that I can talk openly to any of the House members about anything that concerns me.
I have made friendships that will last a lifetime, and memories that I cherish and will never forget. Choosing Stanhope is undoubtedly the best decision I have made, as it is a House that accepts everyone, no matter where their interests lie, or what talents they hold.
