Welcome to Butler

Butler is one of four Outhouses on the Marlow Hill side of the School site. The Victorian buildings have a great deal of character with a central staircase in the entrance, communal living and workspace on the ground floor with all bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs. Butler has around 50 pupils; from age 12 to 17. The youngest four year groups have year group studies and share dorms, and the oldest pupils have their own study bedrooms and sitting room.

Our House colour is orange, and we are known for our vibrant House spirit! Butler’s motto is ‘Be kind and have courage’. We are a caring community and Butler House is a home-from-home. Each girl has a House Mother, and so becomes part of a House Family, a network spreading across the year groups; girls immediately have friends in the older and younger years to ask questions and offer support. There are plenty of evening activities to get involved in from Toastie Tuesdays, Thursday night Book Club and Fruity Fridays where we relax as a community, catching up with one another after a busy day. Butler is lucky to have two resident dogs who are much loved by all. Jess and Zinc are regularly seen around the House and enjoy endless hugs.

The girls are supported by Miss Sunil (Deputy Housemistress and Chemistry teacher), Ms Flavin (Resident Matron), Ms Tarpey (Day Matron) and Mrs Buxton (House Tutor). We are here to help the girls feel settled, enjoy themselves and make the most of every Wycombe Abbey day.
