Wilson House

The 1959 magazine reports that Wilson House joined forces with Powys House to become 'School House'. However, the 1960 magazine reports that it was disbanded when Wilson and Powys each became independent Houses.

Wilson House Song
Thanks to Jenny Winkless (nee Gray) for spotting the words for the Wilson House song in the 1988 school magazine.

Three cheers for Wilson House my friend
Three cheers for Wilson luck
Through thick and thin to our house we'll sing
If we're down we'll not be stuck

For Wilson all the games are played
For Wilson all is done
And all the cups and all the shields
For Wilson must be won

There's courage high in every heart
A smile on every face
And we're all proud of Wilson House
In which we take our place
