Boarding & Day Houses

At The King's Hospital we run a house system for both boarding and day students. Boarding students are cared for by a specially trained and dedicated team consisting of 4 members of staff  in each house; Housemaster/mistrress, Assistant Housemaster/mistress and 2 duty staff. A member of this team will always be residential at night in their house to support the students. Day students will also have a Housemaster/mistress for each year group, providing the same level of care during the day. Please find the list of Housepeople for 2020 below:
