North 'A' House was founded in 1880 alongside the picturesque Upper Quad right in the heart of the school. During the Second World War, the RAF used it as a hospital. It is a house for up to 60 boys aged 13 - 18 and 15 or so of these will be Homeboarders.
North 'A' is a traditional Boarding House where "house spirit" and loyalty are highly rated values. It is a community where all boys are valued as individuals and there is a strong sense of belonging. In recent years, North A has excelled in sports such as swimming, rowing and water polo. The House also has a strong musical tradition and has produced the Joint Senior Prefect for three out of the last four years.
