Two of the last three School Captains have been drawn from Stapylton, a House which encourages and commemorates bold leadership.

Stapylton House is named after former Chairman of Governors H. E. Chetwynd Stapylton (1873 – 1885), who in 1886 bought the field in front of what is now the main school building for the School’s use. This ultimately helped secure a perfect site for the relocation of the School to Queen’s Road in 1932. The Stapylton Field, as it is called, is still very much in use today, primarily for rugby, cricket and the Founder’s Day Fete.

Stapylton are the reigning QIQE champions, demonstrating excellent general knowledge in the University Challenge style quiz competition. The all-round consistency of the boys and the particular strength of their Year 7s led them to win the overall House Cup for 2017/18, regaining the title the House had won in both 2015 and 2016.
