All pupils belong to a competitive House made up of pupils across the year groups. Each house - named after the pioneering Birmingham innovators Boulton, Cadbury, Chamberlain and Watts - is associated with a colour, which is worn with pride by its members and associated staff members at inter-house competitions and events.

Tremendous camaraderie is fostered by regular house meetings and inter-house competitions, enabling pupils to feel part of a strong team.
