Tower House is one of two senior boys’ boarding houses at St Lawrence College. Located in the beautiful original old building, all of which has been refurbished and updated, the House provides spacious and characterful accommodation.
Tower House is a lovely place to live and work for both staff and students under the care of its Housemaster, Gary Davies, his wife Jane, and Deputy Housemaster, Steve King. All of them teach in the school, have a vast experience of all aspects of school life and are in a position to help and guide the boys to achieve their best. They have been a team for 8 years now along with Karen, Tower Matron.
Also in the House are a team of Tutors who support groups of students in every aspect of life as a boarder - from the moment they arrive, in the day to day routines, through examinations, their personal life and even beyond. The Prefect Team also act as an important link between the boys and the staff, as do the efficient cleaning team, all helping to ensure that the boys feel they have support available at all times and are safe in a structured and caring environment.
Tower is a small, contained house, and that means all the boys play an active part and are quickly known by all the other boys. This is evident when the whole House takes part in inter-house competitions; Drama and Singing are particular competitive, when the boys compete as a team. However, Science and Sport have also been particularly successful areas for Tower in recent years.
Everyone works together with the aim that all boys have a memorable and successful time in Tower House in every possible way – work, rest and play!
