HeBE Catherine bhí baintreach Roimh i 1855 at the age of 37. Her barrister husband, John, was riding home from his chambers when he fell from his horse and hit his head. Two days later, he died. She had to find a way to support herself and her ten children, so she sold her home and bought Roxeth Mead, teach mór Seoirseach i Harrow ar Chnoc, agus bhunaigh sé scoil bheag.

Her pupils were mainly her own children and the children of masters of Harrow School. To this day, an scoil fós ar líon na ndaltaí i measc na máistrí Harrow’ leanaí.

Rath ar an scoil agus na, mar a d'fhás Bean Roimh níos sine, four of her daughters took over its organisation. The youngest, Florence (ar a dtugtar Iníon Flo), retired in 1932. The school was fortunate enough to pass into the capable hands of Miss Nicholson (ar a dtugtar Iníon Nick), a bhí a cheann go dtí go bhfuair sí bás níos mó ná 30 bliana ina dhiaidh sin.

Le roinnt blianta anuas bhí an scoil á reáchtáil ag Mrs Eleanor Elgood, followed by Mrs Jean Vernon. Then, i 1982, Bhí Bean Uí Choileáin Averil ceann, post a bhí aici le haghaidh 24 years. During her tenure, Bhí an scoil a fhágáil an t-áitreabh a bhí go bhfuil a chuid bhaile do 130 years. Harrow School came to the rescue, ag soláthar cóiríocht shealadach do 3 bliana ina chlub séú.

Sa 1992, le stróc de dea-fhortún, the neighbouring property to the original house called Roxeth Mead, came onto the market and the school was able to buy Buckholt House, dá bhaile faoi láthair.

Mrs Alison Isaacs became its new Head in 2006. Under her leadership, the school continued to flourish, a choimeád ar bun leis an traidisiúin an am atá caite agus glacadh le forbairtí nua, agus ag féachaint amach romhainn ar an todhchaí.

In the summer of 2018 the owners of the school sold it to Mrs Suzanne Goodwin and her two daughters Sarah Mackintosh and Claire Blunt. Together the trio now run the school.
