Welcome to North House


North House boasts spacious and well-equipped social areas, including two common rooms, an IT work area, lounge, a large kitchen and a bar that is open to both senior boys and girls.

We have a number of ensuite rooms, which are complimented by a mezzanine providing access to upstairs study areas.

North House boarders are encouraged to enjoy themselves, work hard and aim high; we want them to embrace all that is on offer inside and outside the classroom, and take full advantage of all the academic, developmental and social extras given by boarding.

Alastair Falconer is the Head of North House, he is the Director of Hockey at Denstone and also a PE teacher. Only joining the school in 2022, he has thoroughly enjoyed working in the boarding community, particularly with the older pupils in North House and is very much looking forward to taking over from Nic Horan in running the House. A very keen sportsman, who played national league hockey for 10 years, Ali is also a very keen runner and has completed 6 marathons including London 4 times. Away from sport he is a keen piano player and reader, with a particular interest in the history of football and the work of Jonathan Wilson. He is married to Kate, who teachers Sport at the Prep School, and has two children, Daisy and Sophie.
