School Houses

The School Houses

 The School's House system exists to prepare pupils to be active, confident and responsible members of society, to foster personal and social development and academic education, and to create an atmosphere in which everyone is well known, safe, valued, and respected. Whilst each House has a member of teaching staff allocated to lend support, the Houses are pupil-led wherever possible, with the Heads of Houses to the fore.

Regular house activities and competitions take place throughout the year, these may involve games, music, drama or simply fun activities. When placing pupils in house groups, we aim to get a good balance of boys and girls, boarding and day pupils, sportsmen, musicians and academics.
