Magdalen House is named after one of our ancient city gates. It was an impressive gate made of flint, brick and mortar, built as part of the city walls to control trade and defend the town.

Magdalen House think that it is important to work as a team and lead by example, always giving of our best and supporting each other. We view friendship and good sportsmanship as being central to our philosophy, as shown by the symbol of ‘shaking hands’ on our shield.  We pride ourselves on being dignified in both success and defeat.

This year we have had amazing successes, including winning the cup for the most Stars (rewards) and the fewest minuses! We were awarded the trophy for the most points in the Cross Country challenge, and gained the overall winner’s cup on Sports Day. We were, in fact, rated the House Champion last term!  Let’s hope we can continue to rise to new challenges in the new term ahead.
