House System

Every pupil, from the Pre-Preparatory through to the Sixth Form, is a member of a ‘House’ in which they remain throughout their education. There are four Houses at Claremont Fan Court School and points are collated throughout the academic year.

The Senior and Prep House systems lead to an overall House winner at the culmination of the year, with termly updates. The Pre-Prep has a weekly House winner which is announced at Friday's Celebration Assembly.

The House system is an additional pastoral tool promoting school allegiance and a sense of belonging amongst all pupils. Pupils quickly form a loyalty to their house and a sense of fun and friendly competition pervade at all events.
