North 'A' House is well situated close to the Dining Hall, Chapel and King's Building. It is a traditional boarding house where 'house spirit' and loyalty are highly rated values. All boys become a member of The Spartan Club on entry into the house. There is a Spartan Committee which is responsible for supporting both sporting and cultural efforts. It is a community where all boys are valued as individuals and there is a strong sense of belonging.
"I've enjoy the weekly hot chocolate nights very much, and appreciate the food and drinks made."
"All the little 'how has your day gone' comments help a lot and make you feel part of something."
"Try to make a good first impression on the older years and respect them, and try to attend all the clubs that you can, because they are a lot of fun, and help you to socialise with other people in your year."
"I like the movie nights we have every Saturday, as it is a good time to bond with the house and relax after a long week."
