New House opened in 2004 and is home to 60 thirteen to eighteen year old girls. It is conveniently located on North Street West, just a few minutes walk from the main school. With all the advantages of a modern house, it has spacious common rooms equipped with kitchenettes, and has a light and airy feel.
The accommodation is spread over three floors and for the first year the girls share a four bed dormitory before moving into double bedsits for the two years up to GCSE. In the Sixth Form each girl has her own bedsit complete with en suite bathroom pod. Fiona lives in New House with her husband Nick, and has a grown up daughter, Laura.
The Housemistress, Fiona Buckley was born and brought up in Ireland and entered the teaching profession in England in 1984. A modern linguist, her first post as a Housemistress was in Sevenoaks School in the mid nineties. Subsequently she spent ten years teaching in Asia and Africa whilst accompanying her husband Nick on overseas postings. She joined Uppingham School in 2003, and was involved in the setting up of New House, prior to its opening in 2004. Outside her teaching and pastoral activities, Fiona is in charge of girls’ aerobics and girls’ cycling, as well as being involved in language societies and departmental trips overseas.
