Life after LEH

Gateway Alumnae Wall

Nurturing remarkable young women since 1710

LEH first opened its doors in 1710, thanks to the generosity and foresight of one remarkable woman, Lady Eleanor Holles. For over three hundred years, we have been producing remarkable women who, in turn, go on to do remarkable things. Today, our mission remains the same.

At LEH we encourage girls to become informed, bold, resourceful, and ethical global citizens. People who are valued for the qualities and immeasurable richness they bring to our community. When they leaves us, they’ll join a worldwide network of accomplished women who are shaping and changing the world. These young women will become part of a fabric of relationships that will benefit them personally and professionally for the rest her life.
