Neal (Girls' Day)

This section

The ethos of Neal House is to inspire students with a belief in their selves and their abilities. The House motto, 'Pulchritudo Omnia Vincit' ('Beauty Conquers All'), captures the principle that the beauty in everyone, of spirit, of mind and in all its forms, should always be brought out and celebrated rather than hidden.
