Cock House Cup

A new level of competitiveness emerged between the boys in 1920 when the Cock House Cup was presented to the school by Mr J Drucquer.  The Cup is inscribed on the front ‘Warwick School Annual Athletic Sports Cock House Cup presented by John Drucquer 1920, Upper Section Trophy’.  Mr Drucquer previously had four sons at the School and presented the magnificent Challenge Cup for the Cock House of the day.  In 1920 the term ‘cock’ would have been used to describe the proudest house of the day, the overall winner.

The houses at Warwick School had recently been re-arranged, there were three Boarder Houses and Riddell’s and one Day Boy House.  The striking Cock House Cup made Sports Day much more exciting at School as every boy was desperate for their house to win the prestigious cup.  Boys trained so hard that each evening in the weeks preceding Sports Day they were out on the playing fields.  Every boy wanted to gain a few points for his house.
