House System

In addition to having a different Form Teacher each year, children join one of four Houses from Reception. Our team of House Leaders develop an ongoing relationship with them which will last until the child leaves the School. This system provides a second level of pastoral care which is there for the long-term.

HOUSE NAMES: DRAKE | MARLBOROUGH | NELSON | WELLINGTON

Children develop strong loyalty to their Houses and this encourages team spirit and mutual inter-dependence through both sporting and academic endeavour.
 
There are various Inter-House competitions between Marlborough, Wellington, Nelson and Drake are much enjoyed but taken seriously, providing a great team spirit amongst all the children, staff and parents!

Each week, the winning House from the Middle and Upper Schools will have their House flag raised up the flag pole outside the School House for the most stars won across the week. Good luck all!
