    Cunningham
    The current House System consisting of ten Houses was first
    introduced in 1916 when the school of about 70 students was
    divided into 'A' and 'B' Houses.

    In 1922 formal names: Percival, Raleigh and Austin respectively,
    were given to the first three Houses, 'A', 'B', and 'C' based on a
    system of drawn lots.

    'K' House was named for Admiral of the Fleet, Sir John
    Cunningham , old boy and First Sea Lord and Chief of Naval
    Staff.

    Cunningham was one of seven Houses added later in 1954/1955.

    House colours were first introduced into School ties as a mark of
    distinction in 1933.

    Yellow is the Cunningham House Colour
