HOUSES

At Blundell’s our boarding houses lie at the very heart of the school, and its ethos.

Every child, whether a full, weekly or flexi boarder, or a day pupil, is a member of a boarding house, and their house is where they will find friendship, community, support and advice, as well as a genuine sense of belonging. The houses provide a true home within the school for all of our pupils, somewhere for them to do their work, relax with their friends and, for the boarders, to sleep.

Yet they are much more than this, for it is through the houses that pupils learn the social skills that will serve them in later life: how to get on with others, how to work as part of a team, and how to support and care for those around them. As a school we believe that people are defined by their values, and the embedding of a strong set of values is what underpins our boarding ethos, and our house system.
