Houses

The House System is designed to embody the values and ethos of the school and aims to be an integral part of the school community. The House Captains and the School Council work together to create a stronger pupil voice to motivate students and further the community spirit of the school. The Houses are primarily a means whereby the potential of each individual can be capitalized upon.

Our aim is to provide every pupil in each house with the following:

  • a sense of belonging within the school community;
  • opportunities to develop social, intellectual, physical and practical skills;
  • a sense of achievement both inside and outside of the classroom;
  • opportunities for leadership;
  • an awareness of individual and collective responsibility;

Each student is assigned to one of the four houses. All students are enrolled in a House on entering class I onwards. Whenever possible, siblings are allocated to the same House. Once allocated, students may not – under any circumstances – move to a different House. Each house has a House Master/Mistress and Student Leaders, in the primary school and senior school respectively.

 The houses have been named after four precious stones:
