Gervase House has had a varied history and traces its origins back to Worth’s very beginnings as a senior school, first forming up in September 1960.
It has had several ‘homes’ around the school over the years. From September 2017 the House will go through another transformation: We will move location and provide for up to 54 boys in Years 9-13. Boys will have the use of a large common room with a TV and the infamous ‘Pit’. There will also be a games room with a pool table and air hockey.
The accommodation is a mix of old and new. There will be 10-12 boys in each year group and Years 9-11 will live in share 2-4 to a room while Year 12-13 will have their own rooms. Years 11-13 will study in their rooms during prep and study periods and all their rooms have internet access. Years 9-10 will do prep in a separate study room and in House they will be able to access the internet via the common room wi-fi.
We have a very strong House team. The new Housemaster for 2017-18 is Mr Alick Macleod, who returns to Worth after a year working abroad. Mr Macleod also teaches Geography and coaches sport. The Gervase team also includes Deputy Housemaster, Mr Jon Bindloss, and our Boarding Tutor, Mr Richard Phillips. We are very fortunate to have Mrs Janine Forbes-Kiely as Matron.
Our Patron is Blessed George Gervase, a Sussex born Benedictine monk and priest who was martyred at Tyburn in 1608.
