Each boy at Davenies is allocated to a House: Cook, Drake, Scott and Shackleton.
In the Pre-Prep House allegiance is signified by a coloured trim on the collar of the boys’ polo shirts, whereas in the Prep School, a House Tie is worn. The boys are proud of their House affiliation and it gives them an identity across the age ranges.
Each boy’s effort and achievement is rewarded individually and House points are also awarded as a result. There is a termly competition for House Points where a Cup is presented to the winners at the End-of-Term Prize-Giving. The Pre-Prep boys also compete for a weekly House Points Cup.
The House system incorporates various competitions throughout the year from the inter-house pancake race to the sports days. We also have an inter-house quiz and singing competition.
At the end of the school year, the House Cup is awarded to the House that has accumulated the most points throughout the year, taking into consideration all House competitions.
