The Day and Boarding Houses at Wycliffe

Pupils can be a Full Boarder or a Day pupil – flexi-boarding and occasional Boarding are very popular with Day pupils, particularly if they are in a late activity at School. There is a strong sense of family in the Houses, and through House Competitions, (House Drama, House Song, Sports Day or Inter House Quiz Night) – pupils’ feeling of belonging and celebrating individuality is strong.

The Housemaster or Housemistress cares for the pupils in their Houses and are a constant thread through their life at Wycliffe.
