Moberly's is one of the oldest boarding houses at Winchester and still occupies its original site. The three so-called Old Tutors' Houses accommodated boys outside the School walls. Located at 69 Kingsgate Street it accommodates 60 boys in refurbished residential buildings which include three music practice rooms.

Founded by The Revd Harry Moberly, the first Housemaster (1860-1880), and nephew of the Headmaster of the time, Dr. George Moberly, it is formally known as Moberly's but informally as Toye's, after the second Housemaster Jack Toye (1880-1899).

Sam Hart studied mechanical engineering at the University of Edinburgh whilst sponsored by the Army. Following a year at RMAS Sandhurst, he commissioned into the Army Air Corps. He flew Lynx helicopters on a range of operational tours before leaving the Army to join Winchester College in 2008 to teach Physics.

Sam was Head of Sport for 6 years and currently runs the CCF. He has led expeditions both overseas and in the UK, and been involved in the development of the Adventure Education programme. He was appointed to Moberly's in September 2015.

Sam is married to Lucy and they have two young children. His interests include sport, summer mountaineering, mountain biking, military history and travelling.
