Sidney Lodge opened to its first six girls in May 1892 and moved to its present home in 1914. It stands on the site of an earlier house belonging to Lord Fauconberg where George III stayed during his visit to Cheltenham in 1788. The loyal Sidney Lodge girls were not overjoyed at the move. "Our only consolation" one of them wrote, "is that the house is taking its name with it". We’re pleased to report that Sidney Lodge girls are now very happy with their surroundings, and just as loyal!
What is Sidney Lodge like?
Sidney Lodge is a busy but friendly house as we are in the middle of all the other houses and lots of girls walk past our door on the way to College and the Sports Centre. We love to have visitors for lunch, tea or to play in the garden.
My name is Tiffany Doughty Davis and I am the Housemistress of Sidney Lodge. I moved into Sidney Lodge in August 2011 with my youngest daughter Eleanor. My eldest daughter Jasmin is at University in Bristol and my husband will be visiting often when he is not travelling with his work. We have previously lived in many beautiful places such as the Lake District, the Loire Valley and the Swiss Alps where I worked in business and in education. Before coming to College I worked at Aiglon College in Switzerland as a Teacher and a Housemistress. I like to read, ski, study and listen to Radio 4 but most importantly I like being busy so Sidney Lodge is just the place for me! I am privileged to be working with such a dedicated House Team who are committed to ensuring that a pleasant, productive and positive atmosphere is always present. We all love what we do!
