Head of House: Mr Hallett
Since the house systems inception into College life I have had the privilege and honour to represent Xavier as it’s Head of house.
Not only has this given me great joy in seeing the members of Xavier house’s success but also to see the pride and honour that the boys have when representing the house in numerous events.
This is most notable during sports day. Seeing the huge number of participants and their attitude to supporting one and all is truly inspirational.
The house system is fully inclusive and enables all pupils of the College to achieve success. This acting as an extremely valuable opportunity for those to demonstrate their talents and be recognised for their achievements.
I have taken great joy witnessing our house’s success in recent years. Most notably in 2017/18 when we cane joint 2nd, and hopefully this year will bring even more success.
St Francis Xavier is at the forefront of the Jesuit faith, and it is with his guidance that we as a house continue to strive to be men for others. To reach our full potential for not only ourselves but also our house and the wider community.
I thank all the boys for their efforts and wish all houses the very best of luck for this and future house competitions.
House Captain: Thomas Cubitt
Since joining Wimbledon College in 2015, I have always tried my best to participate in House events, both sporting and academically, including rugby, football, cricket and the House Quiz, which Xavier won in 2019. That’s why it’s great to be Xavier’s House captain this year
As a house, I understand that recently we have not tried our hardest in order to positively represent Xavier and the house championship leaderboard reflects this. Therefore, it is crucial that we start to participate in these events in order to ensure we are not bottom of the leaderboard again. This means, even if you feel like you are not particularly gifted at a certain event, it is imperative that you try your best to take part anyway as participation is key in order to make the most out of your time in Xavier house.
Finally, I am very grateful for the opportunity to be house captain for this year and I welcome any questions you may have as a Xavier pupil, so feel free to ask if you see me around school. Let’s make 2021/22 a great year for the house.
