Garnetts is a friendly and welcoming house, which accommodates Year 13 boarders. The atmosphere around the house is very social and warm but Garnetts is also a quiet place to study.
The idea is to create a home from home feeling for all the members of the house. This helps everyone feel comfortable and supported. All the girls are very supportive of each other and Garnetts is the perfect setting to develop strong lasting friendships. The plan of the house is modern, bright and attractive.
