   Every student is allocated to a House when they enter Secondary One. There are five Houses, each comprising over 200 girls drawn from different year groups. These are carefully chosen to achieve a good mix of abilities, backgrounds, friendships and personalities. Inter-house swimming galas, athletics meets and sports matches held annually encourage healthy competition among the whole student body.
