Balmoral House



Balmoral is a boys’ residential boarding House comprising full, weekly and day students. We are a House run on good family values which echo the expectations, characteristics and ethos of the school. The House staff are very friendly and always on hand to help and advise the boys throughout the day. A huge number of sports and activities are organised and keenly contested. Active boys are happy boys! The excellent House facilities are regularly updated and the boys' views are taken into consideration when any improvements are made.

Our prefect, mentor and buddy systems ensure everyone feels welcome in the Balmoral family.

A recent report stated that "Balmoral House is warm, positive and mutually supportive."
A  Sixth Former commented that "...our House feels like a home from home."
