In September 2014 the new LVI Form Boarding House - Florence Dyas - named after a former Headmistress (1888) - was opened. Florence Dyas House is led by Housemistress Mrs Debbie McMahon. She is ably assisted by Ms Sian Evans (Deputy Housemistresses) and Mrs Carol Tait (Day Housemistress). As well as being the Housemistress of Florence Dyas, Mrs McMahon teaches in the English Department. She enjoys reading, live music, stand-up comedy and spending time with her husband Tony, and their two sons.
In the evening a member of academic staff will spend time in the House; this gives the girls an opportunity to meet with staff on an informal basis. House Tutors assigned to Florence Dyas include Mr Mark Cleaver, Mr Dan Curran, Mrs Samantha Handy, Mrs Alexandra Haydon, Mrs Sally Hornby, Mr Andrew Morris and Mr Matthew Rose.
Girls in Florence Dyas are encouraged to become increasingly independent and responsible in a happy, friendly and relaxed environment.
