House System

The purpose of our House system is to further promote community, partnership and participation in school. The House system aims to do this by:

  • Developing the school’s sense of community by developing relationships between students in different year groups.
  • Providing students with a range of leadership opportunities.
  • Provides a chance for the entire student body to be involved in a range of sporting, non-sporting  and cultural activities.
