Head of Hepburn

Mrs D Adjei - dadjei@ndonline.org

Hepburn House is named after the iconic actress and humanitarian Audrey Hepburn. Initially recognised as a film and fashion icon, she devoted much of her later life to UNICEF, working in some of the most profoundly disadvantaged communities in Africa, South America and Asia. She was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in recognition of her work in 1991.

To reflect Audrey Hepburn’s caring attitude in our school lives, last year we took part in several charity events, including creating and donating Christmas boxes for those less fortunate than ourselves and raising money for Comic Relief. In addition to this, Hepburn won the inter-house maths challenge and one of our Year 12 students, Caitlin Prosser, was successful in her application to be a guest editor at CAFOD for a month.

Each of these events show Hepburn’s community spirit, and we are proud to have such an inspirational woman as our patron.
