Named after the Earl of Cranbrook, the building housing Medway and its neighbouring House, Marshall, was purpose-built in 1926. Medway is well known for having a friendly, inviting and cosy atmosphere away from school. Some of the House traditions are the annual Pancake Day Race, St Nicholas Eve and the Upper Fifths' Leadership course.
