The house system provides a base for students in Years 7 – 11. Each house has a team of ten tutors. Normally, tutors stay with their groups until they reach the end of Year 11 and so develop a strong relationship, which supports students throughout their time in school. The house encourages students to take a pride in their appearance and in belonging not only to the school but the house. Each house has their own tie which forms part of the strong identity and sense of community within the school.
The school is well known for the way in which the house system supports students and it is a tradition for families to belong to the same house in future years. House loyalty is strong and inter-house competitions are key features throughout the year in terms of attendance, progress, rewards and achievements in many other areas including sport, science, dance and drama. Each house raises money to support a specific charity in addition to their contribution to whole school fundraising and charity events. It is through such opportunities in our house system that a strong sense of identity, shared responsibility and respect is engendered. Every member of the house is an integral part of the community at Neston High School.
