House Colour – Navy Blue

Named after the great Horatio Nelson, Vice Admiral of the White, Knight of Bath, Baron & Viscount of the Nile, Nelson’s greatest victory came at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 before which he prayed:

May the Great God, whom I worship grant to my country and for the benefit of Europe in general a great and glorious victory; and may no misconduct in anyone tarnish it; and may humanity after Victory be the predominant feature in the British Fleet

Nelson’s sporting prowess is consistent and evident to see. In recent years they have proved themselves a force to be reckoned with on the Rugby pitch during the inter-house competitions.
