Paton House is named after local cotton merchant Sir Alfred Vaughan Paton, a former Governor and benefactor of the School. There are currently 196 students in Paton House, our house colour is green, and Paton was the first house to have its own mascot - Pat the Wolf - who turns up at all the events, resplendent in his signature customised green tracksuit.
Paton House is particularly proud of its talented students, who excel in a broad range of activities. We won the House Music Festival for three years in a row in 2014, 2015 and 2016, and our Year 7 runners were runners-up in House Cross Country this year. We are traditionally very strong in the other sporting events too, and we have performed very well in House Gymnastics and House Badminton competitions in recent years.
The Head of House, Mr Sweatman, teaches French and Latin at West Kirby Grammar School and likes to get involved in all the house events – he is still upset that his beautiful rhubarb and custard Victoria sponge cake only finished second in the 2017 House-Bake-Off. His favourite House event is House Photographic, a competition which Paton last won two years ago.
