Johnson’s (13+ girls)
Named after the founder of Uppingham School, Archdeacon Robert Johnson, the house was built to mark the school’s quatercentenary in 1984. It first opened in 1986 as a second Sixth Form girls’ house, but was remodelled and extended in 2011 in response to demand for more girls’ places.
Surrounded by private gardens, the house has TV and common rooms, a library, music practice room, and three fully equipped kitchenettes.
Johnson’s marks the western boundary of the school, overlooking the sports centre and playing fields. It is within a minute’s walk of the arts, sports and science facilities of the Western Campus.
Fourth Form girls are accommodated in four comfortable dormitories. Lower Fifth girls move into shared bedrooms, while Upper Fifth and Sixth Form pupils have single bedsits.
