The Rise

The riseThe Rise is a magnificent Victorian property that lies on the edge of St Peter's campus.

Mr and Mrs Gillies look after the friendly community of girls who call The Rise their home during term-time.

In 2018 the House celebrated 100 years as a boarding house with a huge garden party. These days around 30 girls live on the first and second floors.

I have been boarding for four years now and it forms a really big part of my life. You form such strong bonds with those around you in The Rise.
