The Murray is located right in the very heart of school, close to the library, the dining hall and main teaching blocks. It is House renowned for its spirit, its friendliness, and for it sense of community, and it is home for 59 boys living over two floors.
The Murray embodies the sense of inclusivity which is such a key part of the Wellington Identity. Although the majority of boys in the House joined Wellington from UK prep schools, we also have those who trace their ancestry to Australia, China, Germany, Greece, Russia, Singapore and Switzerland. This diversity is cherished and one of the defining features of the House is that pupils, both young and old, look out for one another and show genuine pride for their House and for each other’s achievements.
The Murray has enjoyed great success in academic and cultural competitions over recent years and the aim of the House staff is to encourage a growth mind-set among the boys so that they are ready to make their unique mark on the world when they leave Wellington.
