Our House system at the Lower School is very important to the sense of family that exists there. Girls are allocated a House on arrival with us and soon grow attached to their House buddies within their class and within different year groups. House events include sports days, events like our annual biathlon, drama, poetry and debating competitions, ad-hoc curriculum based competitions, charity events, quizzes and assemblies. The system is an excellent way for all girls to learn from and understand how it feels to represent a wider group of their friends and peers.
