North is a House of 100 boys (boarders and day boys) and is situated next to all the major School Sports pitches with an enviable view of the 1st XI hockey pitch (‘Marcon’), 1st XI cricket square and the new 1st XV rugby pitch ‘The Bluett’.
It was purpose built and opened in 1965 to commemorate the centenary of Cranleigh’s Foundation. In 1999 two new wings were added and recently, some extensive refurbishment has created a brand new Matrons’ room and patio garden; an enviable spot in the summer months with a view over Hascombe as the sun sets in the distance.
At opposite ends of the House are the resident Housemaster and Deputy Housemaster. In the junior years, all day boys share dorms with boarders thus reinforcing the integration and sense of community within the House. All rooms are light and airy: the individual Upper Sixth rooms in particular are very spacious, while one of the Lower Fifth rooms has been affectionately dubbed ‘The Penthouse’, thanks to the stunning views it offers over the School grounds and distant hills.
