The House system is at the heart of the grammar school’s strong pastoral care programme.

The four Houses, Lumley, Magdalen, Newton and Tennyson, are named after famous and inspiring historical figures from Lincolnshire.

Each student is assigned to a House as soon as they enter the school, not based on ability but often on account of family connections and current friendships.

The Houses provide a basis for competitive activity and regular House Assemblies are held by House Staff.
 Being part of a strong house system allows our students to receive extensive support from both staff and peers.
