Pastoral Care

House System

The House system is a strong characteristic of Christ College and schools like it in the UK, and it is a fundamental aspect of King Henry VIII College life, too.

The Primary School has its own House system, designed to suit the daily life of students from the Nursery to Year 6, and to get them used to the notion of a group that has a shared identity and purpose.

From Year 7 upward, students are assigned to one of the senior Houses in whose name the boarding houses are configured. Students remain in the same House for their time and King Henry VIII College: day students and boarders join for the House Competitions Рsure to be a central and memorable feature of the School, just as in Christ College.
