The name Glengar was first used for a day house in 1939. There had been one or more day girl "houses" at College since 1926, though originally in name only as they had no dedicated premises. Glengar and St. Clare, the two day houses at the time had their first dedicated common rooms in 1962 and girls wrote of "the pleasure of having a real house". Today, facilities for day girls are much better, with dedicated common rooms, resources rooms, music practice rooms and day girl dining room.
A caring environment, where girls have a positive attitude towards each other, and to their responsibilities, challenges and opportunities.
I feel extremely lucky to have two roles in College that I enjoy so much. I love the balance of my pastoral role alongside my academic responsibilities. I am married to Jonathan Ellis, the Director of Art. Having trained in Fine Art Textiles, I took the opportunity of our relocation to Gloucestershire in 2005 to do my PGCE and taught in local schools. Our daughters both benefitted from their time at College and are now reading medicine at UCL and Chinese at Edinburgh University respectively, while our son is in Sixth Form at Cheltenham College.
