House System

The Royal School’s House system is designed to provide pupils with a group identity distinct from their form identity and to encourage pupils to mix with those older and younger.


We actively encourage pupils to use their own initiatives in devising new and interesting activities in order to enable pupils to contribute positively to the lives of others within school, the local community and wider society. There are numerous opportunities to develop leadership and teamwork skills, from leading sports teams to arranging and managing Inter-House events and competitions including music, drama, fundraising, debating and outdoor pursuits.

The four Houses are named after the Royal households:

  • Balmoral (red)
  • Buckingham (blue)
  • Sandringham (yellow)
  • Windsor (green)

Each pupil wears their house colour as sports kit.

New pupils are allocated to one of four Houses and remain in their Houses for the duration of their time at School. Junior School children stay in the same House when transferring to the Senior School; siblings are normally allocated to the same House. All staff apart from the Management Team are also allocated to a House.
