K Social is a relatively new Social. Having been conceived as a concept under Warden Morgan and then given the go-ahead under Warden McPhail, the Social was opened in September 2008. The building had originally been the bursar's house (towards the bottom of the main drive) but it then incorporated a purpose-built Social, based on the best features of existing Socials. Niall Murphy was Tutor for the first seven years and has now joined the Senior Management Team, being replaced by Chris Lee.
K Social boys are encouraged to feel at home in a friendly but disciplined atmosphere within the Social, and to give of their best in all areas, whatever their particular talents. Recent K Social successes have included two Sewell scholars, two honorary academic scholarships, the Simon Molyneux Cup, the Spens Trophy, the Midgets Rugby Cup, J14 rowing medals at the National Schools' Regatta, captains of the 1st XV, 1st XI football and cricket, an army scholarship and commissions in the Scots Guards and the Royal Marines, and places at top Russell Group universities, TCD, Yale and Oxford.
