Queen Alexandra’s was the best home away from home for me, a young, and somewhat scared 16 year old. For three years, my home in London was with these amazing people. I will most definitely cherish all the memories and wonderful people that I met living/working here. 

There was also such an amazing selection of food on offer at dinner time; always vegetarian and healthy options along with more of a ‘typically normal’ dish to be served. My friends and I were particularly fond of the millionaires pudding and in fact I would still run all the way from South Kensington to make dinner after finishing late if it meant getting to taste some of that chocolate caramel heaven.

I miss having a morning greeting on the way out to school and having a welcome home smile, so yes, definitely a warm refuge!
