The Holloway House System

The Holloway House System features four Houses, Each with unique properties, such as its own: color, symbol, nation of heritage, history, and patron. The culture of the house is determined by student and staff influence. So - here's how it works!

The use of houses is typical in English Schools as a means of dividing pupils into groups, creating smaller communities within the school's population. The system creates teams for internal competition and instills a myriad of wonderful and desirable attributes into individuals and their broader communities.


Students come together, for their house to be the best, and win the numerous competitions and, of course, the overall Holloway Cup! The camaraderie and solidarity developed from the team atmosphere creates interaction, where the young look up to the older and the older look out for and support the younger. When students have a vested interest in one another, a culture of kindliness pervades.
