To ensure that our pastoral leads are able to get to know and support pupils individually in a growing school, we are pleased to introduce a fifth house for September 2020 as part of our planned structure development. Stanmore house is named after the Warren House in Stanmore where a growing number of Fan Court pupils were re-located to temporarily in 1933 for two terms rent free, thanks to the generosity of Sir John and Lady Mildred Fitzgerald.
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.
