Our House System
All girls at St Mary’s belong to one of four Houses. Allegiance to Houses is strong and girls compete in a spirit of friendly rivalry to ensure that the best House wins each year! This might be in inter-House competitions such as netball, swimming, rounders, debating, public speaking or science. The Houses are also the basis of our Charity fundraising work. Girls at St Mary’s realise how privileged they are, and acknowledge their responsibility to others. In Prep, the four Houses are Goldfinch, Kingfisher, Robin and Woodpecker, whilst in Senior House girls belong to Butler, Kirk, Latham or Temple West; all names associated with important figures in the history of the School.
