Austin House is a friendly and welcoming co-educational house which is a crucial stepping stone for pupils as they transition to a senior school environment. Whilst we consider ourselves to be part of the main school, Austin House can promote a positive, safe and inclusive environment allowing Year 7 and 8 boys and girls to flourish as part of a close and happy community. We eat lunch as a House in our own dining room each day and we hold regular House activities and social events.
