Being in the heart of the school, Tower provides a solid base from which boys are encouraged to thrive throughout all areas of School as its culture supports a variety of interests and abilities.

When combined with an excellent and committed team of tutors, the bond between all members of the house ensure that everyone is able to fulfil their potential and make lifelong friends.

Resilience and character building pursuits such as acting on the Bacon Theatre stage, performing in gala concerts or engaging in academic discussions across a variety of subjects are all made possible through Tower's inclusive nature.

What's it like in Tower?

Tower House is, first and foremost, a fun community in which to live.  We try to celebrate life in Tower, with all its teenage ups and downs.  There is a real sense of community and pride at being right at the centre of the school.  Our ethos is to have a go, and we may not succeed in everything, but we have given it a try.  Tower boys won't die wondering, and from the oldest to the youngest, they will give it their best shot.  It's a great house in which to live, learn, attempt new things, make mistakes, be honest, and get to form life-long friendships.   We are a house that tries to look out for the needs of others in the wider world.
