The Upper School is divided into school houses: Brook's, Butler's, Howson's and Selwyn's. Each House has members from each year group in the school. The House provides pastoral care, opportunities for leadership, house competitions and a locker and social space during the school day. Every boarder is a member of a school house and thus receives support and guidance from their House Tutor and their Head of House.
