A Brief History

Dunlop House acquired its name from a family who tragically lost five sons whilst they were serving in various military organisations during the First World War. All of them were Old Victorians and when the College changed its house system in the 1920's, one was named Dunlop in recognition of their bravery and ultimate sacrifice. Today, Dunlop House and all its members are still in contact, and regularly communicate with the present Dunlop family who now live in South Africa.

Today, the ethos of the House is 'get involved, try your best and enjoy the experience.' With this attitude and commitment we famously won the College's Blomfield Trophy, awarded for the best sporting house, in 2008 after a wait of 28 years!

Modern day 'Dunlopians' can take part in a whole range of house based activities including sport, drama, art and music. All boys are encouraged to participate in a range of events, regardless of their ability. If not competing, we consistently enjoy healthy support from the 'side lines'. In addition, the house is committed to raising funds for our chosen charity through events including a house meal and various community activities every year.  The House's mascot is the yellow Dunlop lion, reflecting our tenacious spirit!
