“The relationship between parents and HM is so important for the welfare of the boys. It should be open, honest and operate in both directions. I always want to see parents at productions, sports fixtures and House events: it does so much for the morale of the boys.”

Location: North edge of the Quad, above the Dining Hall


psley is at the heart of the school, both physically and emotionally. Whilst we strive to be purposeful, engaging, determined and enthusiastic it is true to say there is no definitive model for the boys from Apsley: there is academic endeavour and excellence, top level sport, fantastic creative ability in Music, Art, Design and Theatre, and a desire to succeed. Apsley is an original build from the school’s first days and the House has maintained the atmosphere and feel one gets from such buildings. Many of the rooms have mezzanine floors and the fantastic mural as you enter the ground floor really tells the story of what we stand for.

The boys are well cared for by an experienced and talented group of tutors who do evening duties and see their charges at least once a cycle for 1-to-1 tutoring sessions. Matron helps to create a caring environment as well, and the relationships between year groups are strong: there is a sense of the boys looking out for one another. It is a great community to be a part of and one that allows boys to access all the wonderful opportunities the school has to offer, and to flourish as individuals.
