Stonar School
Atworth is a small town in the county of Wiltshire in southern England, located nine miles east of Bath.

There are ruins of a Roman villa in Atworth, and the area is estimated to have been inhabited as a town since about 390 BC. The present-day town of Atworth, however, was founded in 1884.

Today, Atworth is the home of a notable boarding school, and is also known for its cozy historic cottages.

Romola Garai: My family moved from Asia to this little English town in 1990, when I was eight years old. Though my parents are British, it was my first time living in a European, English-speaking location. I attended boarding school at Stonar School, with my family very close by. I lived in Atworth from age 8 to 16, leaving in 1998.
