The House

Home to 59 boys, the Benson is an out-of-College House which sits in its own beautiful grounds and has wonderful facilities. An extensive garden provides a great place for the boys to play together and the newly refurbed north terrace offers a great out door for boys to meet, work or socialise. The bright and open ground floor holds the House’s social spaces, with a large common room, open-plan kitchen, a games room which accommodates full-size pool table and ping pong tables, and the Prince Consort Library which today holds the Third Form work room. The boarding facilities are spread over the top two floors of the House, comprising three dormitories of three beds for the boys in their first year, and individual boarding spaces for every boy from their second year onwards.

The House ethos is one based on the model of kindness, leadership and looking out for others; this supportive sense of cohesion within and between different year groups enables individuals to perform above their expectations and hopes.
