House System

Our House System underpins a lot of what is done at Frederick Irwin ᰮ School. 

To read more about Pastoral Care click here. Each student is assigned to one of the six Houses; each House is led by a House Coordinator. House Groups are made up of students from the same year group. A House Group Teacher is assigned to each.

The House Coordinators, together with the House Group Teachers, provide support in all aspects of a student’s life at school; helping them to achieve academically whilst overseeing their social and mental health and well-being. House Groups meet together at the start of every day.
