The recently-refurbished, and smallest House, St Bees, is home to 14 Year 9 and 10 boys. New House, our female-only House refurbished in 2017, is home to 29 girls across Years 9-13. Collinson, Ridgeway and Burton Bank Houses are all co-educational Houses of mixed year groups, with their numbers of boarders ranging from 38 to 59.
Our boarders develop a close attachment to their particular House, where they live and study under the care of a Housemaster or House Parent who knows them thoroughly and who maintains a close relationship with their families back home.
House identity is keenly fostered as part of a close-knit community.
