Martlet House accommodates 75 girls, both day and boarding. The girls are allocated a different room each term, with the IV form changing every half term to encourage further integration, especially when many girls are new to boarding. In the lower years, the girls share dormitories before moving into single rooms in the Sixth Form.

The girls have access to kitchen areas, which we call moabs and there is a large central Common Room equipped with a television, desktops and a pool table where the girls meet for both callovers and social time. The house also has a laundry room and a shared Common Room with neighbouring girls’ house South. 

The girls enjoy a range of events throughout the year, from an annual charity event organised by the Upper Sixth Prefects to competitions with affiliated boys’ house East and trips and socials throughout the year. 

Alongside the pupils, Martlet is also home to a resident Housemistress and Deputy Housemistress who are supported by an Assistant Housemaster, two matrons and a team of eight dedicated tutors who are on duty during the week.
