Elizabeth Garrett Anderson was the first female doctor in the UK and Garrett house echoes her achievement by trying to be first in everything we do.
Ask any student at St Edmund’s about Garrett House and they will tell you that we like to succeed. We have won Sports Day for three years in a row, won the House Point cup last year and regularly feature at the top of the attendance board. No matter how small a competition is, we like to win it!
As well as our determined group spirit; we also think of others. For four years Garrett House have raced to ‘buy’ goats to send to women in developing countries. The renowned Garrett Goat Christmas appeal has literally had girls running down the corridors to prove that they have raised the most money to win the coveted cuddly goat trophy!
Garrett House loves a challenge and we will keep on trying – until we win it!
