From House

To Home

The Houses

Each House consists of about 65 boys. Although each House has its individual character, there is an even spread of abilities and talents throughout and boys in any one House represent a fair cross-section of the whole School. Houses allow for boys to become an integral part of a smaller community within the School and, tellingly, every boy believes fervently that his House is superior.

The twelve Housemasters sit at the heart of our system, becoming the focal point of a boy’s life at Tonbridge as they take responsibility for their academic progress and pastoral wellbeing. With the support of a tutor team (and Matrons in the Boarding Houses), Housemasters get to know a boy and their family on a personal basis.
