Welcome to Junior House
Junior House is the start of the Wycombe Abbey journey in Year 7. We are a standalone House towards the top of Marlow Hill, a short walk from the main Abbey. We have our own dining room, library and recreation room, as well an outdoor play area. Junior House is home to approximately 75 boarders, with dorms generally of between four and eight girls. Our aim is that at the end of the day, when pupils walk up the hill from School, they feel like they are coming home and are part of a friendly and caring community.
Home is where memories are made. Pupils will get to know their year group really well, as we spend a lot of time together through evening and weekend activities, meal times and staying in different combinations of dorms throughout each term. We have an excellent team of staff to make sure pupils settle in and get the most out of their time at Wycombe Abbey.
