Our house system’s main focus is the pastoral care of our pupils.

Each house has an overall House Tutor and one Year Group Tutor for each year. Pupils register in house each morning with their Year Group Tutor and a certain amount of time each week is spent in house, which helps to create a close-knit community and foster a sense of loyalty.

Houses also compete against each other in various competitions throughout the year, such as the house song competition, house rowing and sports day. Members of each house are identified by the different coloured stripes on their ties.
