The house system exists to encourage healthy competition between groups at the School
It is all about group endeavour, team effort made and rewarded for the common good. The house system creates a sense of belonging beyond the classroom, connecting the smallest Transition child with the most grown-up 11 year old leaver. There is a great sense of house pride.
The children work to claim the House Cup and to attend the year-end, winning House party.
