There are three Day Houses, situated within the proximity of The Green Court, each one consisting of a mix of boys and girls within every year group.
Although the school day is deliberately structured to run along the lines of a boarding school, the House system enables the day pupil to benefit as much as the boarding pupil from the experience of a King’s education. The House is the day pupils’ base for the school day: a place to work, to relax and to socialise with friends. The Day House is intended to mirror the Boarding House in every respect – except for the provision of beds!
All meals throughout the day and at weekends can be taken in the Dining Room, so that a Day pupil need not go hungry if there is a requirement to remain at school for an evening commitment such as a concert or play rehearsal.
House loyalties are strong, and many co-curricular activities occur on a House basis. A highlight of the year is the House Song competition in The Shirley Hall just before the October half term.
