Each pupil and member of staff belongs to one of the six 'houses':
The Four Foundation Houses
- The House of the Resurgent City and Cathedral Church of St. Michael and all Angels at Coventry
- The House of Saint George the Martyr, Glorious Patron of England
- The House of Alfred The Great, King of the West Saxons
- The House of William Temple, Head Master, Archbishop and Servant of God
The Two New Houses
- The House of the Holy Cross of our Saviour at Waltham
- The House of the Holy, Blessed and Glorious Trinity
Each house has its own colour:
- St. Georges - Red
- Coventry - Green
- King Alfreds - Gold
- Temples - Turquoise
- Waltham - Purple
- Trinity - Royal Blue
In September 2006 the new intake, year 7, had colours added to their tie. A yellow diagonal stripe denotes their year group; below this is a stripe in the house colours (for King Alfred's this is a shade of gold). Future years will have a year colour, with their house colour below it. The new tie also features the Bishop's Crosier symbol of the school. In September 2007 the new intake, year 7, had a blue stripe added to their tie.

Famous quotes containing the word houses:
“In America the taint of sectarianism lies broad upon the land. Not content with acknowledging the supremacy as the Diety, and with erecting temples in his honor, where all can bow down with reverence, the pride and vanity of human reason enter into and pollute our worship, and the houses that should be of God and for God, alone, where he is to be honored with submissive faith, are too often merely schools of metaphysical and useless distinctions. The nation is sectarian, rather than Christian.”
—James Fenimore Cooper (17891851)
“When you have eaten your fill and have built fine houses and live in them, and when your herds and flocks have multiplied, and your silver and gold is multiplied, and all that you have is multiplied, then do not exalt yourself, forgetting the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery...”
—Bible: Hebrew, Deuteronomy 8:12-14.
“Midway the lake we took on board two manly-looking middle-aged men.... I talked with one of them, telling him that I had come all this distance partly to see where the white pine, the Eastern stuff of which our houses are built, grew, but that on this and a previous excursion into another part of Maine I had found it a scarce tree; and I asked him where I must look for it. With a smile, he answered that he could hardly tell me.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
