House System

Each boy at Shrewsbury House belongs to one of the four ‘Houses’ – Drake, Nelson, Grenville and Raleigh. All teaching staff members also belong to a House. 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, ranging from quizzes, music, writing, swimming, football, rugby, cricket, shooting, 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.
