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.

Our son has been at King William’s College for two years and has settled in very well with the full support of the boarding staff and teachers, who have demonstrated great kindness and caring. The highly disciplined, but dynamic education system has helped our 15 year old son to adapt well and his confidence has noticeably improved in a short space of time. What's especially pleasing is that not only does the College have an excellent calibre of teaching staff and a strong academic curriculum, but we have been surprised and delighted to discover their excellent music achievements! With such great experience, our second son will also join KWC starting at Lower 5, to have a well rounded education. We cannot be more pleased with our decision to send our sons here all the way from Hong Kong!
