Warner is situated next to the school campus, so all the facilities are very close. It is based on three older houses and has become organic in its development. Each bedroom is different in shape and style. Facilities include a small aerobic gym, pool table, table tennis, table football, music room and its own orchard. There is a happy and relaxed environment and Warner girls are always encouraged to get involved in the broader aspects of school life. An important feature of house life is the sense of community that develops through the girls' participation in the day-to-day running of the house.
Claire Rose has been the Housemistress of Warner since September 2017, having previously been an Assistant Housemistress at Warner, Portway and Martins. Claire holds the post of Music teacher in charge of GCSE Music and Music Technology at Millfield and is Conductor of the Millfield Jazz Band and closed harmony acapella group. She has also been an Upper Sixth tutor with experience of the UCAS process.
Her husband, Jonathan, is Head of Instrumental and Vocal Studies at Millfield, Assistant Housemaster at Ivythorn and a piano teacher. Three children, Lewis, Chloe and Finley, and their interests keep them occupied, and they enjoy skiing and summer Alpine holidays. Claire continues to perform and play both the violin and viola in various orchestral and non-orchestral settings.
