Former governor and parent of Queenswood School in Brookmans Park, Trevor Stamp, 4th Baron Stamp of Shortlands, officially opened the newly refurbished Stamp House, nearly 80 years after his grandfather, Sir Josiah Stamp had opened the original building. It was recently completed to a very high standard of specification as integrated accommodation for both Year 7 and 8 boarders and day girls. More than 100 parents and guests joined the governors, staff and girls for a reception to celebrate the opening and witness the unveiling of a commemorative plaque by Lord Stamp. Visitors had the opportunity to tour the wonderful facilities guided by the Year 7 and 8 girls who are delighted by their luxurious new surroundings. Hertfordshire building firm Jarvis undertook much of the work and Stamp House now provides contemporary accommodation and social and study areas over three floors for the girls and residential pastoral staff within a large enclosed garden.
