The House and Squad systems operate vertically across the school, bringing boys of all ages into contact and providing our junior boys with connections to wonderful role models in our older boys. Houses foster pride and social integration for each boy. It has been a school tradition for as long as Hereworth has been educating boys.
Every boy from years 1-8 is allocated a house when they start at Hereworth. Family links are respected and followed. If there is no family link then boys are put into houses evenly. There is a healthy competition between boys and every house wants to win.
The House System at Hereworth is as old as the school itself and is designed to:
• Give each boy a sense of belonging to a group who encourage him regardless of his ability.
• Provide an opportunity to forge friendships with boys throughout all years of the school.
• Allows for friendly rivalry and competition, which in turn fosters greater school spirit.
Houses are Elder, Grant, Reeve and Rickard and these are all named after former Hereworth staff.
