A Brief History

Our House bears the name of the three sons of Admiral Sir George Sartorius, GCB. Reginald William, Euston Henry and George Conrad, all OVs, had distinguished careers in the army.  Their bravery was frequently mentioned in dispatches.  Reginald was awarded the Victoria Cross for his part in the Ashanti Expedition and Euston was awarded the Victoria Cross for gallantry in the Second Afghan War. The Sartorius brothers are noted for being one of only five pairs of brothers to have won the Victoria Cross.

We have a strong tradition of excellence in all areas, especially sport. We have won the College's Blomfield Trophy (awarded for the best sporting house) 7 times in the last 8 years.  Our artists, thespians and musicians have combined their talents and led the House to victory in the Landick Cup (awarded for Drama, Art and Music) in 2010 and 2011, as well as 2nd place in 2012.

Sartorius House has supported the charity Sightsavers for the last 26 years.   Each year all our students help raise money with a charity meal and raffle as well as a sponsored event. This usually involves volunteering to do work which helps protect the local Jersey environment at the same time as raising money.
