The key characteristics of the boys in Skrine’s are selflessness, honesty and a sense of humour and perspective.

Skrine’s boys are welcoming, considerate and helpful Housemaster

Living in a boarding house means sharing, and those that get the most out of it are able to look at life from others’ perspectives. Honesty spans everything from not taking someone’s rugby socks without asking, right through to being honest about how much effort is being put into school life. And a sense of perspective is essential: there is no better tonic than the company of one’s friends to generate this.
