Gonner House is named after Sir Edward Gonner, the first Chairman of Governors of the school. The house colour is blue as legend has it that Lady Gonner was fond of wearing blue dresses!
Gonner House is particularly proud of its sense of community spirit and the willingness of its members to participate in house activities, regardless of ability! We enjoy competing in all house events, and even won the House Cup in 2017 for the most house points. For several years we have triumphed at House Badminton with 2017 proving to be no different. We are also very proud of being House Gymnastics Champions in 2016 - and we definitely have talent in this area. Gonner is a house that will come together when needed, putting a House Music a capella ensemble of 55 people together in less than 2 weeks in the Autumn Term. We are a house that believe in democracy (we had a house vote to select a new house song), integrity (we compete fairly and with respect) and inclusiveness (everyone is welcome). Mostly, we believe that being part of a house at WKGS should be FUN.
The Head of House, Miss Conboy, teaches History and Politics at West Kirby Grammar School.
Our students say...
Being part of Gonner allows for friendships to be built and strengthened across year groups, causing an amazing sense of community as students strive to succeed under a House Banner' (Joe Parry, Deputy House Captain)
