“The Residential Life programme is an integral component of the Appleby College experience. The boarding programme prepares student well for university life and promotes understanding, empathy and inclusion, while encouraging meaningful relationships with a diverse group of students from across the globe. The friendships, connections and memories that are made are sure to stay with the students forever.”

Colley House

Colley House Covenant

As members of Colley House, we pledge as a house that we will, in acknowledgement of the different cultures and backgrounds present, embrace diversity and celebrate our difference as one house. We, as members of Colley House will be leaders within the school, leading by example through our respect for others, our integrity, our trustworthiness and responsibility, both to ourselves and to others. A spirit of brotherhood will shine in all aspects of Colley House life, bringing us closer together and allowing our entire house to act as one. Colley House recognizes that actions within a community speak louder than words, and therefore, we reiterate that we will think before we act in order to ensure that our actions will show respect for the house and boarding community as a whole!

Powell's House

Powell’s House Covenant

We, as the gentlemen of Powell’s House, strive to lead towards the common goals of happiness, success, kindness, and prosperity. The Powell’s House gentlemen recognize the importance of unity and teamwork and thus embrace the differences and similarities ever-present in each of us. Each day is not merely an occurrence of chance, but rather an opportunity looking to be grasped. The gentlemen of Powell’s House look to open up to these opportunities with integrity, responsibility, effort and hope. Most of all, Powell’s House recognizes that our actions as a whole defines each individual. Thus, Powell’s House will always resonate with a tremendous brotherhood, teamwork, and support.
