Opened in 1878, Wiseman’s House today plays host to students from diverse backgrounds and cultures. Our House is based on trust and respect, and provides a relaxed and friendly environment in which everyone can learn and develop at the pace that best suits them. Boys are responsible for being considerate and tolerant towards others, and are expected to learn to have some independence when it comes to making decisions about when to work (outside of set prep times) and what other activities to do. Our aim is to see each boy grow and fulfil his potential in the House and the wider school environment.
Wiseman’s boys regularly go on to top universities both in the UK and abroad.
Students are encouraged to take part in a wide variety of extra-curricular activities, including swimming, badminton, basketball, and indoor five-a-side football. Pool and table tennis are also played in the House, and we have recently taken the boys paintballing and go-karting.
