Buchanan House – Ages 17 to 18
The final year of school is both an important and an exciting one, with A levels on the horizon and the end of school in sight. Boys are ready by this stage to spread their wings a little. To give them more independence in Year 13, boys move into Buchanan House, which acts as a transition between school and university or college.
The accommodation – brand new in 2011 – is modern and comfortable. Each boy has his own study bedroom with en-suite bathroom and internet access.
We encourage the boys to look after themselves, manage their finances and prioritise their time, without compromising their studies.
The house has a garden as well and a large yard – even Sixth Formers aren’t too old for a kick-around – as well as several common rooms with a pool table and table tennis.
Although meals are still provided in the school dining room, we encourage the boys to use the house kitchen to make snacks and learn some basic cooking skills in readiness for student life next year.
