The Charter School

East Dulwich

House System

Our House System reflects our commitment to education on a human scale. School Houses will allow us to build relations with students and between students by providing smaller, more intimate communities within the school. Houses will also be key vehicles for promoting healthy competition, through inter-house academic and sporting competitions and for community service, as well as eventually for building an entrepreneurial ethos across the school. 


Tutor groups will be assigned to Houses and students will meet regularly with their Heads of House. Heads of House will be senior teachers who will lead on the development of character and values, in particular our core attributes: curiousity, creativity, confidence, courageousness and caring. There will also be opportunities for student leadership, in the form of House Captains and eventually prefects.
