House System

Each house is run by a Housemaster or Housemistress with a team of Tutors who are allocated to the five year groups. Sixth Form pupils are routinely given the opportunity to help and support younger pupils through the prefect system or through running teams for house competitions. The Housemaster or Housemistress leads and manages the house and he or she is the first point of contact for parents for any advice or guidance. The Tutor sees the boys and girls at the beginning of each day for registration, and again at the end of the day. The relationship between Tutor and tutee is vital and the keystone of effective tutoring: the Tutor really gets to know the pupil and champions his or her cause when needed.
