Senior Boys' Boarding House - Wilson House

Wilson

Wilson House is a boys' house situated in the heart of the oldest part of the school and dates from the 1860s and 1870s; the buildings are the work of the eminent Victorian architect George Edmund Street, most famous for the Law Courts in the Strand in London. The House, originally known as the Headmaster’s House, was renamed Wilson in 1925 in honour of Charles J. Wilson, the third pupil to attend the school. He later became a master here and subsequently the Bursar. He was resident in the school for 75 years.

Wilson is home to about 60 boys across five year-groups. Housemaster Mark Skevington is assisted by a team of tutors and Upper Sixth prefects in running the House. In Wilson, the Third Form share three study bedrooms, while the Fourth Form share four. Many of the Fifth Formers have a single study and in the Sixth Form this is usually guaranteed.

This year, Wilson House Captain is Charlie Lewis-Jones.
