Each pupil is a member of a House which in itself creates a strong sense of community. Each House incorporates boarders and day pupils. Everyone has a part to play in the life of the House and there are many opportunities to represent the House. Prefects are involved in the organisation of day to day life and the resident Housemaster/Housemistress, and a team of academic tutors, ensure that all pupils receive appropriate support and guidance in all aspects of school life.
There are separate boys and girls senior houses. The Junior House, Riley, has small single sex dormitories. Girls in the senior part of the School have their own single study bedrooms and after the first year the boys have their own single study bedrooms. There are brew rooms and small sitting rooms on each floor and there are common rooms and kitchen facilities in the Houses with daily supplies of bread, milk, butter and jam. There is also wireless network coverage in each House. Pupils have their meals in the centrally located Dining Hall.
The Housemaster/Housemistress provides the vital link between the parents and the School. Parents are kept informed about their children’s progress and are always welcome to visit the House and contact the Housemaster/Housemistress. Each House has a Matron on duty during the day. Should there be a need for medical care, a fully equipped purpose built Medical Centre is located centrally on the campus and Perth Royal Infirmary is nearby.
