The house system provides a community for students in Years 7 – 11. Students are in a tutor group with peers from the same house, and in most cases, tutors stay with their groups from the point of admission in Year 7 until they reach the end of Year 11. The tutor can therefore develop a very strong relationship with their tutees, which supports students throughout their time in school. Each house has their own tie which forms part of the strong identity and sense of community within the school.
It is a tradition for siblings to be assigned to the same House. 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.
