Welcome to Barry
Barry is one of four Outhouses on the Marlow Hill side of the site. The Victorian buildings have great character with a central staircase in the entrance, communal living and workspace on the ground floor with bedrooms and bathrooms are upstairs. The Barry House colour is sky blue and you will find the door to our House painted proudly in our House colour. We are a kind and supportive community.
From hot chocolate evenings, smoothie making, to sharing popcorn watching a film, there is always something happening in Barry to help the girls get to know each other across the age groups. At the end of term, we always look forward to our House Outing which may be a disco boat down the River Thames, laser quest, dinner out or theatre trip. These trips off site are a great way to celebrate the term together as a House.
