Heyworth House, which can accommodate 20 girls, was completely refurbished in the summer of 2010 and offers an outstanding environment in which to live and work.


There is a truly international feel to the house with girls from Europe, North America, Russia and Barbados mixing with many home-grown boarders. This cosmopolitan dimension is one of the key attractions of Heyworth with its success built on interdependence, understanding, mutual respect and a keen awareness of the strengths of those around you.


The ethos of the house is very much based on creating a warm, family atmosphere while recognising every girl’s individuality. All girls are encouraged to pursue their own co-curricular interests and Heyworth has representation in all areas of school sport, music and drama. The Houseparents, Mr and Mrs Duncan, live in the house with their own young children and their presence creates a real sense of a very large and happy family home. Mr Duncan teaches in both the History and Modern Studies Department and the Classics Department, and is well known throughout the school.
