Echyngham

I think I’ve settled in really quickly. I love my dorm, which I share with my new friends.

Echyngham is a mellow brick, ivy clad construction dating from the 1900s. It is a comfortable building with a homely atmosphere. Echyngham has many traditions that have been handed down through subsequent generations. The most important are the House Carol Service in the Autumn Term and the House Charity Evening. These are events eagerly anticipated by the students and hugely successful. Our aim is to provide a safe, happy and homely environment so that our girls may feel supported and keen to explore new opportunities.

Housemistress: Miss Lucy Lynch works in the PE Department and is Head of Lacrosse; Lucy still plays for England, has played in three World Championships and is aiming for a place at the 2017 World Championships in Surrey.  Before joining Echyngham, Lucy was DHm in Norris and has been an Acting HM in both Norris and Echyngham.  Lucy is actively involved in all aspects of school life and enjoys the fun and busy atmosphere in the junior boarding House.

Deputy Housemistress: Miss Martha Burn, joined Echyngham in September 2017. She is a teacher of Classics.

Matron: Mrs Sue Sherar is Resident Matron and has been in post since 2003. Our Day Matron is Mrs Angela Scarfe and Mrs Kathryn Farmer is Evening Matron and Saturday Assistant. The House team is very well assisted by a Graduate Assistant.

I think I’ve settled in really quickly. I love my dorm, which I share with my new friends.
