St Peter's School


Wentworth House

The St Olave’s School boarding house is called Wentworth.

Wentworth is a co-educational junior boarding house situated on the northern edge of the School campus.

It is a warm and friendly place, home to Mr Gareth Sharp, his wife Helen and their daughters. There are also resident house assistants and a matron, making for a sociable and convivial home away from home.

Boys sleep in the older side of the house, whilst the girls have the newer modern extension.

Downstairs there are games rooms and shared common rooms where prep and then evening activities take place. Breakfast is eaten together around the kitchen table in the house, whilst dinner is taken with the St Peter’s boarders in the main dining room which also allows siblings to meet up regularly. Lunch is in the St Olave’s dining room where they sit in Houses.
