Boulden House Centennial

Boulden House, established in 1924, stands as a cornerstone of the Junior School program at Trinity College School. Named in honour of the Rev. Canon C.H. Boulden, the first head of the Junior School, the building was constructed as a memorial to the sacrifices of TCS alumni who lost their lives during World War I.

The building was designed by Henry Sproatt, with early drawings by TCS alumnus and renowned architect Frank Darling, class of 1866. Built in the early Elizabethan Gothic style, the design was inspired by Kenilworth Castle in England. Boulden House is one of the oldest existing buildings on campus; following a devastating fire that destroyed much of the School in 1928, only The Lodge and Boulden House remained fully intact.

Boulden House stands as a testament to the enduring principles of resiliency, unity and dedication that define our school community. Over the decades, it has remained a nurturing environment where young minds are shaped, friendships forged and memories cherished. Today, with a student body exceeding 100 pupils spanning Grades 5 to 8, Boulden House continues to honour its heritage while embracing innovation and progress, preparing the next generation of leaders to make their mark on the world.
