the essence of the Garden House child
The essential principles established in those early years: goodness, kindness, forgiveness and a happy, purposeful energy, remain at the core of the School. Dance, music, and singing remain pivotal to how Garden House School children thrive and develop.
In 1973, Miss de Brissac handed the ownership of Garden House School to Mrs Jillian Oddy, a parent at the School. Mrs Oddy led the school as the Principal. Under her leadership, the school grew gradually.
In 2020, her children Christian Warland and Sophie Strafford became joint Principals, having been Boys’ Head for 15 years and School Registrar for 25 years respectively.
