Welcome to Hart
A beautifully converted farmhouse with views across the open countryside, Hart is a mixed boarding house. Hart is situated in cottages on the edge of campus, allowing pupils to walk away from school at the end of the day and enter a 'home' headspace; a completely different environment to retreat to after a day of lessons and activities. The House has been completely refurbished, keeping all the best features of an old farmhouse but with excellent modern facilities. Bedrooms - mainly twins - are spacious, warm and airy, with boarders encouraged to decorate their rooms with pictures and posters to make it feel like home.
The boys and girls are housed in separate wings, meaning they have very secure and distinct sleeping and bathroom areas. A 5-minute walk away from the main school, Hart boarders have Stonar's outstanding grounds to call their 'garden', as well as a secure back garden that is perfect for outdoor games and barbeques.
Hart has a strong House team to ensure a smooth integration into life at Stonar. Boarders, depending on their age, take on different responsibilities within the House to promote pride and responsibility for it.
