White House was originally established in 1976 as a Boarding and Day House for Sixth Form girls. It was moved a few years later to its present location at the northern end of the terrace of what were originally alms houses overlooking the College lawns. White is now a day house for girls aged 13-18 (with boarding available in the Sixth Form) and welcomed its first cohort of Year 9 day girls in 2018.
Faith Smith, Housemistress
I took over as Housemistress of White House in September 2015. I love the energy and buzz of the House and the way the girls support each other across the year groups. There is never a dull moment and the girls are such fun to be with!
I attended Bristol University where I completed a BSc in Mathematics and also studied for my PGCE. I am passionate about skiing and showjumping – in the past I have run showjumping and eventing teams, taking them to national success in the Schools Finals and at Hickstead.
My mum lives in France so I spend much of my free time in Normandy. In the UK, you can often find me at the gym or walking our House puppy, Millie.
Di Liqourish, Matron
I have been in White House for 22 years. I have always found it to be a happy House, buzzing with life. The girls are a great support to each other. I’ve seen so much change about the House – it was a boarding House for Lower Sixth and Upper Sixth girls, now we have day girls too – but throughout that time the qualities displayed by the girls have remained the same. They are polite, fun, and remain lifelong friends.
I have three grown-up children and when I’m not involved with the life of the College, I spend as much time as I can with my young grandchildren!
