At Eaton House The Manor Girls' School, the housemistress plays a pivotal role in the life of each girl at school. She champions each girl and encourages her to be part of the wider team.
As the house system spans the seven years from KG to Year 6, the girls gain a real sense of belonging and make many special friendships.
The housemistress praises the girls in her house, rewarding their many successes and offering a helping hand or a steer in the right direction when it is needed.
From the beginning the KG girls are allocated their big sisters via the house system and overseen by the head of house, who plays an important role in ensuring that every girl is on track and supporting her house with passion and pride.
There are many house competitions from poetry to netball, general knowledge to Easter bonnets! The housemistress is the constant, always there to help organise them and cheer from the sidelines!
Teachers and housemistresses support each other's work in and out of the classroom through the house point system – ensuring there is close communication between them at all times, and this just adds another layer to our excellent wrap-around pastoral care.
