Buckingham House


Buckingham House currently accommodates 120 day boys. The House occupies a central position at Gordon's, directly overlooking the Parade Square.

We provide excellent facilities for the boys, including a kitchen, several common rooms and changing areas, Sixth Form study rooms, and a classroom for prep.

In their free time in the House, the boys can enjoy large screen televisions, gaming consoles, table tennis, pool, and for the more musically minded there is a piano. We have House pets; two tortoises called General (after General Gordon) and Shy Guy. We provide rugby and soccer balls and Frisbee for use on the field.

Buckingham is a safe, happy, inclusive House and we have great community spirit and camaraderie across the year groups.

Our aim is to promote the personal development of each student, to grow and fulfil his potential in the House and wider school environment.
