Newlands House is the day house for senior boys aged from 13 to 18. We are one of thelargest houses in the College, with more than 60 boys. Newlands House was formed in 1929 and has been located in several areas of the school, before settling on the first floor of the main building.

Large common rooms are shared between 3rd  and 4th Form (Years 9 & 10) boys, whilst the 5th Form (Year 11)  have their own equally large space. The rooms are equipped with table tennis tables, computers, lockers and relaxing spaces to sit or work. We have excellent changing facilities and toilets that are available to the boys for the duration of the school day.

We are a competitive House; we love to take on a challenge and see value in giving our best in all situations. We win many competitions and display our success in various spaces around the House.

A word from the Newlands Housemaster, Mr Adam Gunn:

"My vision for the future of Newlands is one where the House facilitates and guides the boys towards taking advantage of every opportunity afforded to them by the College. Newlands must be a House where every student is valued, views can be shared and meaning and purpose discovered. I encourage all Newlands’ boys to develop themselves by challenging their personal weaknesses and doubling down on potential professional strengths. This is the best advice for success in the fast-changing landscape of opportunity that they will leave the College into. I want them to be well-equipped, productive and formidable."
