Colbourne House has space for 60 boys in a comfortable and spacious two floor boarding house and 2 other satellite boarding units, the Hundred and Jackson House. All boarders are accommodated in double or single rooms with one larger three man room for Fourth Formers, which ensures rapid integration. All Upper Sixth Formers are guaranteed a single room to make studying as easy as possible. There is a Junior Common Room for Upper Fifth and younger and a Senior Common Room for the Sixth Form. Kitchen facilities are also available for all year groups. A large Games Room is constantly used to hone the boarders’ snooker and table tennis skills. The Housemaster and his wife, Edmund and Sara Jeffers live right next door to Colbourne with an interconnecting study. Wendy Lang, the Housemother, lives in a flat upstairs as well.
Colbourne Head of House
My name is Tom Gerrard and I am Head of House in Colbourne. I have been at King William’s College since L4. Although, I have only been a boarder since U5. Being elected Head of House was a massive honour as well as a huge achievement for me, seeing as I had only been in the house for two years. This just shows how welcoming Colbourne is and how easy it is for everyone to fit in. There are thirteen nationalities in our house, enabling us to mix with and experience so many different cultures which is such an amazing exploit. The combination of close friends, friendly faces and supportive boarding tutors makes coping with my studies far easier. Independent of culture or hobbies, Colbourne house has a place for everyone.?
