School House System

The House System provides opportunities for students to develop all aspects of their growth and learning: personality, morality, creativity, knowledge and skills. 

The system promotes values of fair play, teamwork, citizenship, mutual responsibility, self-discipline, initiative, perseverance and resilience.

School Houses








St George’s Cross




Scottish Saltire




Welsh Dragon





The House System comprises three strands of activity:

  • Housepoint systems, which operate in different forms within Primary and Secondary;
  • Inter-House competitions such as debating, the House Art Competition and Sports Days;
  • Charity fundraising, in which the Houses work together in shared fundraising activities.

Allocation Of Students To Houses

Whenever possible, siblings are allocated to the same House. New students with British or Irish nationality are permitted to choose their House. Attempts will also be made to accommodate requests from other new students with an ancestral or cultural affiliation with England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland.

Once allocated, students may not - under any circumstances - move to a different House.

Within Primary, the allocation of new students to Houses ensures, as far as possible, equal House representation in each year group and each tutor group. Gender balance is also considered.

Within Secondary, the allocation of new students to Houses ensures, as far as possible, equal House representation within each of the Middle Phase, the Upper Department and the Sixth Form, as these are the subdivisions of the Secondary House Competition.
