Welcome from Head Girl Team

The start of this academic year has been as busy as ever, but this time round it has seemed especially poignant, as it is the last time that the four of us will be going ‘back to school’. It seems like a very short time since we first walked through the doors, and in that time we have seen the school evolve and develop for the better each year - hopefully as have we! It’s safe to say that the opportunities we’ve had open to us are unrivalled; our metaphorical mason jars are practically overflowing with memories from seven fantastic years at this school. Each girl at LEH will have a different experience from the next and that’s what helps to build such a vibrant community.

The atmosphere at LEH is very special. Everywhere you go, there is a unique buzz, and it is fantastic being in an environment with like-minded people who all love learning. There is something about all-girls education which is extremely empowering; we really feel that all of us will leave here thinking we can do anything we set our minds too. The sense of sisterhood is also strong within the school.

We each have a different story to tell from our time at LEH. This school is made special by the people here; girls and staff alike. Don’t just take our word for it - come and visit us!

A fascinating talk given by the renowned scientist Robert Winston in our very own Assembly Hall was a particular highlight of the last year, and was part of a diverse and busy Science Week. As an aspiring medic and scientist, I found his talk particularly interesting, and was really inspired by his thoughts on science. The calibre of his talk is representative of the incredible speakers that visit us here at LEH.

Over the summer, Alex and I spent three and a half weeks in Namibia with the Hampton School Adventure Society. We spent time teaching in local schools, learning about the incredible wildlife, and getting involved in activities like white water rafting. It was a once in a lifetime experience we won’t ever be able to forget.

I have loved getting involved with all the drama during my time at LEH. The sense of team involvement that you get from being a part of a cast here is so lovely and it is always amazing to see everything come together with immense sets and elaborate  costume at the end of the rehearsal time.

I came to LEH playing the flute and the piano, and was quickly encouraged to get involved in the dynamic, exciting activities available. I now enjoy playing in the school orchestra, two chamber groups, a flute ensemble and sing in three choirs, one of which is joined with Hampton School. A definite highlight has been our choir tours, where I have been able to sing in Budapest, Vienna as well as in Venice- truly amazing experiences that will stay with my for my whole life.
