Welcome to Clarence
For many girls, Clarence is a highlight of their time at Wycombe Abbey. Life here is very different from the rest of the Boarding Houses in the School. There is much greater freedom and independence but of course much greater responsibility and personal accountability. For the first time since Junior House (or for the first time ever, if you joined us later), the whole year group lives together in the same House. There is a real sense of community and shared experience here.
Pupils live in groups of between nine and 12, in houses with single-study bedrooms and their own central kitchen. This is excellent preparation for the next stage of their lives, especially for living in halls at university – and beyond!
The opportunities in Clarence are vast. As well as excellent A level results, we hope pupils will take away important life skills, including how to lead a healthy lifestyle, how to ensure a work-life balance, a responsibility for their own learning and organisation, and a host of new personal interests and qualities.
Clarence girls are expected to set the tone for the rest of the School. We expect them to rise to the challenge and set an example for the younger girls to follow.
