Pengelly House was constructed in 1977 and was named after the Headmaster at the time, Kenneth Pengelly). The House accommodates pupils from Year 7 up to Year 12 and has a flourishing, multicultural boarding community.

Pengelly boasts a number of facilities, including a newly refurbished common room with plasma TV and Sky, a Blu-ray player with surround sound, a PlayStation, an Xbox and a pool table.

Due to its central location on campus, pupils from other Houses often visit during morning break, lunch, afternoon break and in the evenings, when they can use the facilities.

In the evenings, boarders use the prep room to complete their homework. Once homework has been finished and checked by House staff, the boarders are then free to take advantage of the activities put on in the evenings or relax by watching sport or a movie.

Phil Hughes lives in Pengelly with his wife Jemma and two girls Lily and Lucy. As well as being Housemaster, Phil teaches PE and Games and is Master I/C Rugby.
