Each student is assigned a house upon entering the school, which is an important part of the school’s community. Students are provided with sports kit with their specific house colours, which is to be worn in P.E. lessons and house sporting events.

Numerous house events are competed in, such as football, rugby, tennis, cross country and netball, as well as other non-sporting activities such as chess, drama and art. At the end of the year, the house with the most points is awarded the Dragon, a golden dragon statue in a glass case. The dragon is then engraved with the year and the winning house respectively.
