Houses

Welcome the Eton Academy House System, a cornerstone of our school community.

Houses are a long standing British tradition that sees all of our students split into smaller communities that help foster a sense of belonging and friendly competition with the other houses.

Throughout the year students can earn points for their house through excellent work and good behavior, school events and competitions and for their contributions to our school community.

At the end of the year, the house with the most points will win!
