Moving on up through the school brings an increase in freedom matched with an increase in responsibility. One of the main aims of Frankland House is to offer a smooth transition between the junior house (Storey) and whichever of the two senior houses the boys then move onto. Throughout their time with us, we also aim to provide the highest standards of care and support that we can.

Frankland was created in September 2008 to accommodate all the Year 9 boarders. Following a major refurbishment of what was previously the School House annexe, the boys were able to move into a mix of single and double rooms with a newly created recreational space.
The house takes its name from one of our illustrious Old Lancastrians, Sir Edward Frankland. While also being a major influence in modern Chemistry, Frankland’s greatest achievement is probably that of contributing to the provision of fresh drinking water to Victorian cities and it was for this that he was knighted.
Taking on a new house was quite a challenge but with a superb team of staff and a great bunch of lads coming to us from Storey, we feel it has been a great success.
There has been substantial investment and the school has vastly improved the accommodation for the boarders (Ofsted)
