Leconfield is a Day and Boarding House. It prides itself on being a warm, friendly and purposeful place to live. By encouraging each boy to contribute to its community through positive communication, diligence and an innate playfulness, all boys quickly become part of the Porcherite (as Leconfield boys are known) family very quickly and look out for each other throughout College life.

Leconfield was part of the second wave of Boarding Houses to be developed at College in the late 1860s along with Hazelwell, Cheltondale and Christowe. Its place at the heart of College for over 150 years means Leconfield has enjoyed much success in House competitions; a tradition that today's boys are keen to maintain.
Daniel Evans is the Housemaster of Leconfield and he lives in the House with his wife, Becks, who is the Higher Education and Careers Advisor at College. They have two young boys, Hector and Tobias, who are a part of Leconfield life. Daniel joined College in 2013 as Deputy Head of Upper College. He teaches History and History of Art and prior to joining College he was Head of History of Art and Architecture at Wycombe Abbey School. He considers it a great honour to be running a House with such a rich history.
Daniel is supported in his House duties by Assistant Housemistress Ellen Matthews, who teaches Maths, and Resident Tutor Dan Lovell, who teaches Physics, as well as a team of non-resident tutors and matrons.
They all help to make Leconfield a home from home for Porcherites and a lively place on the weekends, with many activities on offer after school finishes for the week. Indoor climbing, water activities, paintballing, skiing, theatre and museum visits are just some of the things Porcherites can enjoy during the year.
