Aristea House

Blue – the colour of confidence!

Aristea House

A magical house where we cultivate our wishes and dreams, and where our mascot, Brainy Smurf, is always hungry for knowledge and inspiring us to achieve.

Aristea House is all about compassion, spirit, respect, and the ability to achieve anything we put our minds to. Aristea is a place where your individuality is important, where you are encouraged to be yourself. It is a place where you can be comfortable in who you are. Our colour is BLUE. So, like the wonderful blue of the sky, the vibrant blues of the ocean and the varied blues of the Aristea flower, our house embraces the uniqueness in each learner and allows her to reach her full potential and make those dreams a reality.

“I think tutor groups are great for girls of all different ages to connect and give each other advice. Your tutor group is like your safe place where you are free to ask as many questions as you like and receive a helping hand when needed.”

– Amber Halls

“Tutor group is kind of like a cup of coffee: as soon as you walk in for some reason you can’t help but perk up even if it is only a little bit. I think that’s because of the people: after a bit you KNOW you can ask for help and that there are friends around ready to be there for you.”

– Angel Brink
