Rambert House is named after Dame Marie Rambert, a Polish-born dancer who exerted great influence on British ballet, both as a performer and a teacher. Throughout her life and career, she showed great resilience to pursue what she truly desired to do as she lacked the support and encouragement she need from those around her. This determination led to the creation of Rambert Dance Company, previously Ballet Rambert, which is still highly influential and respected in the dance industry to this day.
Dame Marie Rambert was chosen to represent a House at Beaconsfield High School because of the way her life represents the aims and values set out at the school for all students to strive to achieve. Some aims that Rambert particularly associates with because of the way she lived her life include empowerment to support oneself and the development of leadership qualities.
