Midleton

Welcome to the Midleton House Website!

We are very proud to take our name from Lord Midleton, one of the four founders of the school and an original governor.  Our house colour is royal blue, and at house events you can spot anyone in Midleton a mile away as we cover every inch of ourselves in the colour, and if you can’t see us, you can probably hear us. Midleton’s infamous chants can be heard from the lax pitches on St Catherine’s day or are deafening everyone in the swimming pool on House Swimming.

Taking part is what counts in Midlton and this year we are very proud that anyone who signed up to participate in House netball got the chance and helped us achieve second place!  This engenders a great sense of team spirit and a sense of community; indeed a sixth former recently remarked that she viewed the last six years as “attending Midleton rather than attending St. Catherine’s”.

History of Midleton House

In 1936, we were the 'Blue' house. Becoming "Midleton" when the original four houses were dedicated to important people connected with the school. Our namesake is Lord Midleton, who was one of the founders and Chairman of Governors at St Catherine's.

Little is known about Lord Midleton as he does not appear on the school walls. The only reference to him in the past school magazines is in the Speech Day reports. Lord Midleton was succeeded in 1938. Midleton continues his legacy to this day.

Midleton's royal blue colour is proudly worn by the girls at any house event. We are renowned for being the most enthusiastic, with by far the most cheers and loudest supporters.
