All students belong to one of three Houses and it is through these that they are provided with a place to go - a home away from home. The common rooms and kitchens are places for relaxation, meeting with friends and socialising. The House Staff are always available to provide a listening ear or advice on any matters.
Building strong relationships is essential and through the Houses we arrange friendly competitions, trips and charitable work. Teams are selected and House Points are won. Individual students are also awarded House Points for their progress and achievements. Students take on positions of responsibility and act as role models.
House Assemlies are held twice each week and students are involved in presentations and performances.
