Limes House, built in 1993, is paired with neighbouring Oaks House. Here we encourage the Sixth Form to take responsibility for their own lives and learning and prepare them for the transition to the next step in their futures.



Mrs Hilary Phillips is Housemistress of Limes, having previously been Head of Ashdown House and Haberdashers' Monmouth School. Hilary lives with husband Jeremy and children Theo, Esme and Tilly. They also have dogs, chickens and a horse.
