Named in honour of Sir Joseph Fayrer, a leading doctor and reformer at the start of the last century, Fayrer House is the largest in the College. Originally established in the Newsom Building, the House moved 40 years ago to what was then the school sanatorium, which explains its remote location away from the main school buildings. Fayrer was totally refurbished recently and in addition to a wide range of multimedia facilities, now boasts a cinema room. A new kitchen and seating area was added in September 2015.

Stuart Head took over as Housemaster in September 2008. He lives in the House with his wife Phillippa and three children. Stuart teaches Business Management within the Business Studies and Economics Department and coaches the girls’ U16A hockey team, boys’ U16A football team and boys’ cricket at U14 level. A talented hockey player, Stuart won almost 50 caps for the England and Great Britain hockey teams and played in the 1998 Commonwealth and 2000 Olympic Games. He is also a keen golfer. Phillippa is a qualified physiotherapist and previously practised at Epsom Hospital. In her leisure time she enjoys singing and is a member of a local choral society.

Fayrer takes pride in the mutual respect shown amongst the year groups and believes in working hard first and then playing hard. Over the past eight years, a family culture has developed in the House and the Housemaster treats all its 70+ pupils as his own extended family. Fayrer boys are proud to wear their tie and are devoted to making the House a success.
