At the heart of Laundimer House is a fine Victorian town house, once the residence of Robert (later Baron) Vernon Smith, who was MP for Northampstonshire in the mid-nineteenth century. The House stands on North Street in the town centre and a short walk to most of the School's teaching areas. To the rear, the House enjoys its own enclosed garden, with a football pitch and tennis court. Since its original acquisition by the School in 1916, Laundimer House has been altered and extended greatly.
