Where relationships are at the heart of the school and
the school is at the heart of the community

House System

There are four houses in The Swanage School - Challenger, Endeavour, Halsewell and Victory - each led by a head of house. The House system provides students with an opportunity to become involved in a wide range of activities including fundraising for charities, inter-House debates and sporting competition.

Students are allocated to one of the four Houses when they start at The Swanage School and remain in their Houses for the duration of their time at school.

All students are encouraged to play an active part in their Houses. Students are given the opportunity to develop leadership and teamwork skills in a variety of ways, from leading sports teams to arranging and managing major inter-House events.

We actively encourage students to use their own initiative in devising new activities and challenges to maintain the Houses as a flourishing part of school life.
