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:
“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.
“Let those talk of poverty and hard times who will in the towns and cities; cannot the emigrant who can pay his fare to New York or Boston pay five dollars more to get here ... and be as rich as he pleases, where land virtually costs nothing, and houses only the labor of building, and he may begin life as Adam did? If he will still remember the distinction of poor and rich, let him bespeak him a narrower house forthwith.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“To me heaven would be a big bull ring with me holding two barrera seats and a trout stream outside that no one else was allowed to fish in and two lovely houses in the town; one where I would have my wife and children and be monogamous and love them truly and well and the other where I would have my nine beautiful mistresses on nine different floors.”
—Ernest Hemingway (18991961)
