The House is the centre of every MPSites life, and the four Houses offer a strong sense of identity. House spirit is encouraged by competitions in a wide variety of activities, from art to sports, and House colours can be won for cultural as well as sporting achievement.
The Housemasters and Housecaptains take care of the Houses, and are supported by the Assistant Housemaster and a team of Teachers. Each teacher has a small number of pupils with whom he or she meets at least once a week to provide the help and encouragement that enables every pupil to make the most of life at the School.
The School encourages self-discipline and a sense of responsibility, and aims to create an environment which is co-operative rather than adversarial.
