The King's (The Cathedral) School


In integral part of student life at King's is the House Competition, fiercely fought with events throughout the year. There are four houses:

Each House has 2 captains and 4 vice-captains, chosen from Year 13, based upon their contribution to the School and their House during their time at King's.

All students are given the opportunity to gain 'House Points' for various achievements. Students compete in sporting, musical and academic activities throughout the school year and are greatly encouraged to identify with their House 'community' - working towards the hope of winning the prestigious 'House Cup', awarded after Sports Day, at the end of the school year.

The event of the year, though, has to be 'House Music'. All the Houses compete in one night of fantastic musical entertainment, putting on pieces from their own orchestras, band, junior choir, senior choir and then raising the roof with the whole House 'finale'.

Please take a look at the House pages, where you can find out more about each House and keep up to date with how recent House events have gone.
