House System

Each boy at Shrewsbury House belongs to one of the four ‘Houses’: Drake, Nelson, Grenville and Raleigh. All staff members also belong to a House and work with the pupils on House events. Senior boys are involved in the leadership and organisation of the Houses.

Boys are immensely proud of their House and have various opportunities throughout the year to represent their Houses in competitions, including quizzes, music, writing, swimming, football, rugby, cricket, table tennis, poetry and athletics.

The House Plus and Minus Competition is keenly contested throughout the year, with all boys gaining rewards which contribute to their overall House score, and the coveted House Trophy.
