The IIs (12+)
The IIs sees the girls joining the hustle and bustle of the main school from the beautiful security of Todd House. The recently refurbished house strives to give the girls the home away from home that they are looking for when at school. We strive to develop the girls' interpersonal skills, as well as their communication skills with adults and peers.
This year is all about gaining and keeping a good outline in their academic lives as well as in their boarding and home lives. We teach the girls to be more organised and forward thinking. We encourage personal growth and awareness of the actions of those around them and themselves.
The IIs are led by the Housemistress and Deputy Housemistress. They both work closely with the girls and the Tutor Team to help the girls discover who they are and what Tudor Hall can do to help them reach their ambitious life goals.
Trips in the IIs include Art Trips to London, Trampolining at Bounce, Laser Quest, Canoeing, Chessington World of Adventures, trips to the cinema and theatre, Body Shop Parties, Movie Marathons, various socials with Summer Fields School in Oxford and also great outdoor education trips to the Gower Peninsula, leadership days and a wilderness survival weekend.
Every girl is treated as an individual and encouraged to become her own person and avoid the status quo.

Sarah Hammond IIs Housemistress
I Joined Tudor in 2015, where I became the deputy housemistress in the IIIs. I am very excited to now take on the role of IIs Housemistress. Before joining Tudor I was a housemistress for two years at a co-ed independent school in the north of England. In 2010 I graduated from Worcester University, where I studied a BA (Hons) in Drama and Theatre studies with Human Biology, whilst completing a Diploma in Dance Teaching in London. I then because a freelance dance and drama teacher before taking up a pastoral role. I enjoy watching the girls grow and working alongside them in both the class room and at home in the boarding house. During my time off I like to go to the theatre, clay shooting and marshal as Silverstone race circuit. I really enjoy being in the IIIs house, we are always very busy doing something different, I hope you will enjoy it too.
Lucinda Burton IIs Deputy Housemistress
I was delighted to join Tudor Hall in September 2016 as Deputy Housemistress for the IIs. I have worked in Education for 5 years in academic and pastoral roles. As well as working in the house I teach Religious Studies, PSHE and work in the Learning Support Department. I studied Theology and Religious Studies at Leeds University before moving on to Birmingham University to complete my PGDipEd.
I live on site with my fiancé Dan who is an engineer and two white cats, Neville and Pippin. I enjoy travelling and going to the cinema in my free time. I love working in boarding as there is a never dull moment! The girls are always making me laugh and we get up to all kinds of fun activities in the evenings and on the weekends. Supporting the girls emotionally as well as academically is of the utmost importance to me as is ensuring that they have the best boarding experience possible. The IIs house is a wonderful place to be and feels like a true family.
