  • Housemaster: Mr James Clark
  • Assistant Housemaster: Mr Jos Herbert
  • Matron: Ms Lorraine Bailey

North A is a through boarding house for boys aged 13-18 and is designed for a maximum of 58 Boarders and Home Boarders. It was founded in 1880 and is located adjacent to the Upper Quad, close to the Dining Hall, Library and Chapel. On joining North A, all boys become members of the Spartan Club giving them a strong sense of belonging. It is a traditional boarding house where ‘house spirit’ and loyalty are valued.


Mr Clark is married to Nicola and they have two young sons, Owen and Elliot. He teaches A Level and GCSE Sport Science, is Head of Rugby and also coaches Girls’ Cricket. He can be contacted by email or on 01223 508952.

I enjoy the weekly hot chocolate nights very much, and appreciate the food and drinks made.
