歷史Roxeth米德學校

Hebe Catherine Prior was widowed in 1855 at the age of 37. Her barrister husband, 約翰, 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, 格魯吉亞在一個大房子在山上哈羅, 而且創辦了一個小型的學校.

Her pupils were mainly her own children and the children of masters of Harrow School. To this day, 學校的學生人數仍然在其主人哈羅’ 兒童.

The school thrived and, 正如劉健前長大, four of her daughters took over its organisation. The youngest, Florence (稱為小姐弗洛), retired in 1932. The school was fortunate enough to pass into the capable hands of Miss Nicholson (known as Miss Nick), who was its head until she died more than 30 年後.

For some years the school was run by Mrs Eleanor Elgood, followed by Mrs Jean Vernon. Then, 在 1982, 柯林斯太太埃弗里爾成為頭, 後為她舉行 24 years. During her tenure, the school had to leave the premises that had been its home for 130 years. Harrow School came to the rescue, providing temporary accommodation for 3 years in its sixth form club.

In 1992, by a stroke of good fortune, the neighbouring property to the original house called Roxeth Mead, came onto the market and the school was able to buy Buckholt House, 目前國內其.

Mrs Alison Isaacs became its new Head in 2006. Under her leadership, 學校繼續蓬勃發展, 保持傳統的過去,而迎接新的發展,展望未來.
