the essence of the Garden House child
The essential principles established in those early years of goodness, kindness, forgiveness and a happy, purposeful energy remain at the core of the School. Miss de Brissac was a memorial to dance, music, singing and learning, values which remain pivotal to how Garden House School thrives and develops.
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 offspring Christian Warland and Sophie Strafford became joint Principals, having been Boys’ Head for 15 years and School Registrar for 25 years respectively.
