In Dennett House, a strong work ethic and commitment to academic success is combined with a fun, creative and stimulating environment. Boarders enjoy a wide range of activities, excursions, social events and voluntary work. We promote the all-round personal development of our girls and encourage them in their ambitions for the future.
Our staff know the specific challenges that arise during these important examination years and are on hand to provide support and guidance. Girls are given an excellent preparation for university, chosen careers and the changing world.
Today’s Dennett girls are tomorrow’s leaders. Our aim is for our girls to leave Dennett ready to face the world as strong, confident individuals, with a lively sense of team spirit. Friendships are founded on happy memories of shared experiences, in these important transitional years into adulthood.
Mrs J Murray-Turner, Dennett Housemistress
Full BoardingFull Boarding
The majority of boarders at New Hall are full boarders, staying at school throughout the term and going home for exeat weekends, half term breaks and school holidays. With structure and routine, they have every opportunity to achieve their potential, both academically and socially. A full programme of co-curricular and house activities means that there is always something to do.
Weekly BoardingWeekly Boarding
Freed from a daily school journey, Dennett weekly boarders can concentrate on academic study while having extra time to invest in their co-curricular interests and talents, such as music, sport or drama. Weekly boarders may either depart on Fridays or remain for Saturday activities. Most weekly boarders choose to return on Sunday evenings, although they may return on Monday mornings if they prefer.
