Welcome to delaware

Delaware boys — or 'D-boys' as they like to be called — are, first and foremost, brothers. They love to show off their house and are known for throwing spontaneous parties for the whole school. They boast that their location is the best in the school, as it's closest to the sports field and gym. Delaware truly feels like a home where they have the peace to unwind, work and rest as well as spend time with their friends.

From the Students

One word to sum up life in Delaware? FUN! As the largest boys' house there's always something going on, and it's usually quite noisy! But the atmosphere is always really friendly. That's because the 'D-Boys' are such a tight group of friends. I've made so many deep friendships here — they are my family.

House History

Delaware House Archive - Shot from Hotel Cerf

Delaware’s idyllic setting and purpose-built facilities are a haven for the 53+ senior boys who live here. An open-plan common area blends life in house to the surrounding garden and allows the boys much closer proximity to school life than their predecessors, who lived in a house going by the same name further down the street in lower Chesières.

The house was created when the boys took over the old ‘Hotel Beau Séjour’ in central Chesières due to the arrival of girls to Aiglon in 1968. As the fourth boarding house and in keeping with the tradition of names following the alphabet, the building became known as Delaware. The boys then moved to the current house in 2006 when the school constructed its first-ever, dedicated boarding house.
