Delaware (Senior Boys)
Purpose-built for boarding, Delaware boys enjoy light and spacious accommodation on the edge of the forest with a huge private garden and spectacular views.
Welcome to Delaware
Delaware boys – or D boys as they like to be called – are first and foremost brothers and are at pains to look after one another. They love to show off their house and are known for throwing spontaneous parties for the whole school - discos, variety shows, dinner dances, karaoke nights, barbecues, party games – nothing seems beyond their talents.
As well as generously sized bedrooms and private work areas, the boys enjoy five large common rooms fully equipped with table tennis, pool, table football, hammocks, a house library and plenty of games. They boast that their location is the best in the school – closest to the sports field and gym. It truly feels like a home where they can unwind, work and rest in peace and spend time with their friends.
Despite their friendly and relaxed appearance the boys are fiercely competitive. Last year they not only won a number of interhouse trophies, they also achieved astounding results at the IB and somehow still had the energy to raise over 5'000CHF for charity through a variety of crazy and inventive schemes from pumpkin carving to hand delivered Valentine’s gifts.
These achievements notwithstanding, nothing is more important to the boys than their brothers in the house and they truly do make lifelong friends through their time here.
Delaware House Team
Mr Haynes, along with Mrs Haynes and their two children, love the spirit of the boys in Delaware. With respective teaching backgrounds in mathematics and environmental biology, the Haynes engage well with their house as both teachers and parents, bringing both a light-hearted spirit and steady guidance to the almost fifty boys who call Delaware home.
