The House System is designed to support pupils with a wide variety of matters such as relationships with teachers or other pupils, careers advice, subject selection, and to help them focus on their studies.
The four Houses also provide the basic structure for school sports and other competitive activities. Inter-House competitions in Athletics, Swimming, Winter Sports and Cross Country are highlights of the school year.
The House Shield is awarded annually to the House who gains the most House Points during the year.
Each House elects two House Captains (boy and girl) to lead the House in these activities under the guidance of the Dean of the House.
