Farrant House (Day House)
Farrant is the day boys’ house. It has approximately fifty five boys from year 7-13. Located at the top of the school, above the boys’ boarding house, it has two common rooms and a work room for the boys, as well as an office for staff to catch up with tutees and parents. The house is a space for the boys to socialise in, use as a location they can catch up with staff and catch up on any work if needed. The common rooms are equipped with computer consoles that provide regular entertainment and competition amongst the boys, as well as table football, helping to create a positive community feel.
Boys come up to house before school for roll call at 8:20am and at 1:45pm for roll call before afternoon lessons, they are also welcome on house throughout lunchtime and can stay on house until 6:15pm in the evenings to focus on their academic studies. The house is always staffed, with teachers from a variety of subjects, so support is always available.
The staff team is made up of teachers from a variety of departments, who pride themselves on excellent pastoral care and support of the pupils. The range of age groups allows our senior boys to be there to support our younger pupils on the house, with day to day issues or specific support with work. In Year 13 boys have the opportunity to take on the role of Head of House or House Prefects, taking on responsibilities such as completing roll call, maintaining uniform standards and helping to make a positive contribution to life on Farrant House.
Throughout their time on Farrant the boys are encouraged to take part in extra-curricular activities on offer at the school, whether that is representing sports teams, getting involved in the performing arts, helping on the farm and around the estate or seeking to develop their academic studies. There will be opportunities to join whole school trips and house trips during the year.
