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 Neale IIs Housemistress
I Joined Tudor in 2015 and I am looking forward to continuing my 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 IIs house, we are always very busy doing something different, I hope you will enjoy it too.
Camille Garnon IIs Deputy Housemistress
I was born in Paris but for most of my life I have lived in a small town called Manosque, in the South-East of France. Coming from a different country, I understand what it means to be away from your family and friends and to have to adjust to a completely new environment, the main challenge for the girls in Todd.
After taking an undergraduate degree in Cinema and French Literature, I decided to go back to a childhood passion and do a degree in English Studies. This led me to become a language assistant and boarding assistant in a Somerset school, where I discovered the British Education, especially the pastoral aspect of it, and loved it so much I decided to stay and make it my career. I have been in Britain for eight years now, and at Tudor for five; I have loved every minute of it, as I am sure your daughters will.
In my free time, I like to read, listen to music and watch movies. I also love to cook, especially French specialties, but I am slowly learning to cook all the British favourites! During the holidays, I love to travel around and go see my friends all over Europe but, like the girls, my favourite is still to go home and enjoy the sun!
