Hudson House

Hudson House is the largest boarding house on the campus, accommodating some 130 boys across Forms 3 to 5, and house prefects. Hudson House was built in 1958 and was originally named Shepstone House.

In 1982, it was renamed to the current “Hudson House”, remembering College’s 7th Headmaster, Mr ‘John-Willie’ Hudson. Hudson was a much-revered Headmaster of imposing stature and a booming voice that struck terror into many a young College boy!

Hudson House has a noticeable culture of community and success inherent in its boys and staff and is well renowned for its academic and sporting prowess. Over the years, the House has enjoyed an identity and a unique Hudson’s camaraderie. It is this fabric that makes this House a special place and it is something that allows the boys who live in it to call it a home away from home. This is echoed in the quote, which is from a poem written by a previous Head of House; “What is it in these walls that bonds the hearts of men?”

The House has evolved over time and today boasts a host of features, including a dedicated common room, a TV room, a homework and study venue, an outside garden for braais and outside activities, as well as WiFi connectivity in the House. The staff team have a combined 50 years of experience in boarding amongst them, ensuring the Hudson’s boys are well supported in a progressive and forward-focused environment.
