The House System is an important part of School life. Each boy belongs to one of three Houses – Arundel, Balmoral or Caernarvon.
There are a number of competitions across the year in which the boys compete against each other while representing their House. These contests may vary each term. The year culminates in a House Sports Day, in which all pupils from both the Girls’ Prep and the Boys’ Prep Schools participate. Each House is led by a teacher and a House Captain and Deputy. The Year 6 boys are given the opportunity to put themselves forward as the most eligible candidates to lead their House to victory. The elected captains are responsible for leading their House for the rest of the year. Throughout each term, all the boys in the School are keen to receive House points that go towards the weekly totals.
As a new initiative, termly Junior House Captains are selected from Year 3 boys.
On an individual basis, boys also receive awards of bronze, silver, gold and platinum to celebrate their hard work and exemplary behaviour.
