The Old Vicarage


The Old Vicarage opened in 2001 as Warminster Senior School’s Junior Boarding House accommodating years seven and eight boys and girls. In 2007 the house became the junior boys’ boarding house looking after years seven to nine, with Northdown House accommodating the girls’ years seven to nine.

The Old Vicarage can cater for up to twenty seven both full time and weekly boarders. Some return home at weekends, while others stay on, often representing the school in sporting and other activities. These small numbers make it easier for staff to get to know the pupils and for the pupils to get to know each other.

The house has seen many changes over the past few years including the purchase of a new 50’ plasma TV for the common room, a new table tennis table and five new computers. These in addition to the many half termly competitions, including pool, table tennis, music and debating makes the house such a vibrant one. The house also embarks on many weekend trips including our annual teambuilding PGL challenge weekend, cinema trips and the ever popular paintballing trip as just a few.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you in September. The Old Vicarage is our home too and whilst you are here, you will be part of our family.

We hope you will help us in making it a safe and happy place to be where everyone matters, and where respect for one another is reflected in the spirit of the House.

All of us here will do our best to help you settle in and enjoy the time you spend as junior boarders at Warminster. Hopefully, you will have many happy memories to take with you when you move on.

Please read this booklet carefully as we hope it will answer some of the questions you may have about boarding.

Old Vic's Got Talent
On Tuesday 10th December, the Old Vicarage boarding house once again hosted their own talent contest, ‘Old Vic’s Got Talent’. After being filled up with an excellent festive dinner, the boys returned to the house to receive their Secret Santa. Pupils were only allowed to spend two pounds on their gift and it was amazing to see the thought and effort that some pupils had gone to in purchasing their gifts.
Old Vic End of Term Boarding Letter

It is amazing how time flies. It seems like only yesterday that the term begun but now Christmas is just around the corner. I was delighted to see all the new and returning faces back to the Old Vicarage at the start of term. They have all settled in well to the routine of the House, and I am pleased to see how quickly friendships have developed.
