The school is divided into a number of ‘houses’ and each student is allocated to one house
The house system is a traditional feature of a school. The school is divided into a number of ‘houses’ and each student is allocated to one house. Houses may compete with one another at sports and maybe in other ways, thus providing a focus for group loyalty.
A secondary feature of house systems is the competition between houses. For example, the traditional school sports day is usually an inter-house competition. Debating competitions and charity drives are also often organized along inter-house lines. Merit points for behavior and academic achievement may also be totaled up for comparison between houses.
Pupils are usually assigned to houses randomly, perhaps with the aim of balancing the houses in order to increase competition. One notable feature of the house system is the appointment of house captains, and maybe other house prefects, who exercise limited authority within the house and assist in the organization of the house.
