Senior Girls' Boarding House - Raymond House

Raymond House is situated on the main campus tucked between Seymour House and Exham House. Walking from the inner quad, Raymond is past the Great Hall through the tunnel on the right.

Raymond House is arranged across three floors sandwiched between the Housemistress and AHM accommodation.  There are usually about 60 girls in the house, split into five year groups. Third Form pupils share four dormitory rooms on the top floor.  When and where possible full-time boarding pupils in the Fourth and Fifth Forms are allocated a single room, however, this cannot always be guaranteed.  What is guaranteed is that every pupil will be allocated their own bed, desk, set of shelves and lockable facility. 

In addition to the House’s Main Common Room located on the ground floor, there is a kitchen and small common room on every floor which can be used by any pupil boarding or day.

This year, the House Captain is Millie Pinder.

Raymond Tutor Team

On joining Bloxham, each student is assigned a tutor. Tutors mentor and guide their tutees, monitoring and supporting their academic, spiritual, social, and physical development. They are in regular touch with a student’s home, to share with parents and guardians how the student is developing, passing on information and sharing ideas about how each individual can be helped to mature and grow.
