Junior School Houses
We provide a safe, inclusive and engaging learning environment and we are a world leader in wellbeing and positive education.
The House system is integral to the School’s approach to pastoral care and provides many opportunities to participate in annual traditions and community activities, enhancing a sense of belonging and camaraderie. The House tradition is strong and thriving throughout the School with different House systems in the Junior and Senior Schools.
Boys in Reception to Year 6 are divided into four Houses and students from Years 3 to 6 meet fortnightly and engage in inter-house competitions including sports, debating, public speaking, music and chess. House points are allocated for boys’ positive attitude, behaviour and leadership within the Junior School.
The aim of the House system is to:
- Increase the positive influence of the School on a boy’s character
- Help boys meet their responsibilities in their studies, in other School activities and in the wider community
- Instill the lasting virtues of courage, honesty, decency and loyalty
- Foster a School spirit that expresses itself in positive relationships between boys and staff, and in sport and other activities
- Discover and recognise the talents of each boy
- Help students with any problems that may arise
- Provide academic, moral, social and emotional support and guidance
There are four Houses in the Junior School, each named after important teachers in the School’s history.
