Hayward House

Hayward House ExternalWelcome to Hayward House, well known for its friendly and supportive atmosphere, producing young men of whom the College can be proud.

Housemaster: Mr Simon Lipscombe

Deputy Housemaster: Mr John Bauer




Hayward House is the oldest of the Boys' Day Houses and is named after Mr A.D. Hayward, Science Master at the College from 1914 - 1956, in recognition of his devoted service to the 'Day Boy’ House, as it was previously known.

There are around 65 boys in Hayward. Whilst each year group has allocated study areas, common rooms, changing rooms and kitchens, there is real integration within and between year groups.
Hayward House plaqueHayward has a tremendous reputation in sport. Over the last few years, Haywardians have represented the College in all major sports, always contributing players to the top teams, and the House has produced several College captains in each of the major sports. For Inter-House events, there is never a shortage of volunteers to make up a team and a great team spirit is guaranteed. Haywardians always take the event seriously, but do so with a sense of fun.

Academically, Hayward is very strong, with many students achieving a ‘10 club’ tie each year. Haywardians always feature heavily when College Prizes are awarded at Speech Day at the end of the Summer term. Hayward has won the Brains Trust quiz twice in the last five years.

In drama, Hayward is well represented at all levels.  There may well be a Haywardian playing a leading role, but there are always other boys in the supporting cast and technical crew.
