Every girl that passes through the doors of Pembroke is different and unique in their own way and as a House it is important we honour that and allow each pupil to feel valued, respected and empowered to celebrate their own unique identity.”Rebecca Figgitt - Housemistress, Pembroke
Miss Figgitt believes passionately in the benefits of boarding and she understands how much it can help to develop happy and successful young people. The world we live in continuously offers challenge and change and her vision for the girls in Pembroke is that they become global citizens that can face these challenges with resilience and confidence, embracing whatever awaits them.
Every girl that passes through the doors of Pembroke is different and unique in their own way and as a House it is important we honour that and allow each pupil to feel valued, respected and empowered to celebrate their own unique identity. This is done through nurturing their individual talents and strengths, wherever they may lie, but also enabling the pupils to embrace the obstacles and problems they face and turn them into opportunities and possibilities.
Most importantly, all Pembroke girls will be kind and courageous and the House itself will offer a friendly, warm and empathetic environment where each pupil has the opportunity to flourish and grow.
