The Houses

Every pupil in King William's College is assigned to one of three houses, Colbourne (for boarders), Dickson and Walters.

These houses are co-educational and serve for purposes of competition, allowing every pupil in the School the opportunity to participate in team activity across all year groups.

 Houses compete academically for the Kelly Trophy, which is awarded on Founders' Day and the House Drama and Music competitions are both keenly contested, providing entertainment of a high calibre. There are House sporting events too and, as well as competitions in all the main School sports, there is an annual swimming gala and a sports day.

I loved King William’s College from the start. I made up my mind within an hour of our time there that I wanted my son to attend. You have to come to College to understand what makes it stand out from the rest. It is a place of genuinely caring and friendly people. Another aspect of College we love is its vast international community. Our son has made some great friends and as a result has come to appreciate and respect other cultures and traditions. Our son loves College. He loves the independence to make choices, the easy access he has to his tutors, the opportunity to make his own mistakes and learn from them, but most of all, he loves the fact that expert assistance is always a breath away.
