This is the largest of our boarding houses. It is not only a friendly and welcoming House, but is set in the most imposing main building, which also contains the Bursary, Staff Common Room and Headmaster’s Office.
The School House formed the core of the original school in 1871 and now it is a vibrant community, which has enjoyed great success academically, on the sports field, and in cultural pursuits.
Due to its size and the very international flavour of its boarding community, The School House is a very dynamic place to be. It is a popular choice for pupils, each of whom gets his own single study/bedroom as soon as he begins boarding. The 2014 refurbishment has given the house an even greater home from home feel and the Common Room now boasts an air hockey table and modern furniture.
Mr Irwin is also supported by his wife, Jo, and their two children.
