The House System

We offer a high level of pastoral care through our House system. There are five Houses, each named after a great figure in the College's history. Students are placed in a House when they first arrive at the College and remain in the same House throughout their time at the College. Siblings are usually placed in the same House.

Our Heads of House, assisted by a team of Tutors, provide the continuity of care throughout a student's time at the College and they are the normal means of contact between College and parents. House spirit is encouraged through a variety of Inter-House competitions, both sporting and cultural, and through numerous House celebrations, ranging from formal dinners to summer barbecues.

The House also provides the day-to-day framework of discipline and respect for others. Although there are school rules which must be adhered to, just as important is our pro-active system of commendation and reward. Students are encouraged to act with consideration, self-discipline and social awareness.
