Our House System
Although BOSS is one big family, your house will be your closest family. Your housemates are the people you live with, your team, your brotherhood or sisterhood. We have six houses at BOSS and they are called Kipling, Milne, School House, Rowling, Oaks and Wells. Each house has its own noble history and each has produced outstanding students. While you are at BOSS, your triumphs will earn you house points, while any rule breaking will lose house points. At the end of the week, the house with the most points is awarded with the oh so precious pizza and the right to eat first in the Dining Room for the following week, a great honour. We hope that you will be a credit to whichever house becomes yours.
Our House System provides you with a “home-from-home” environment that will help you to learn and grow as individuals and as leaders. Without realising it, everything that you do is a valuable life lesson that will help you to learn and develop under the close mentorship of our House Tutors.
House Tutors will welcome you into your house and provide you with all the care that you need during your stay. We have a team of up to 30 staff members who all live onsite to provide you with care, attention and to supervise you but your House Tutors will be your first point of contact and the person you should turn to for advice or assistance.
The comradeship and sense of belonging that grows within our House System will naturally encourages you to work together with your housemates, to do your best and to succeed with pride in all that you do.
Accommodation: We have three houses for boys and three houses for girls. All houses are onsite and arranged according to the following age groups – 8 to 11, 12 to 14 and 15 to 17. Please note that we do not have en suite accommodation for students aged 8 to 11 however all bathrooms are within a 5 second walk from bedrooms.
Rooms: We offer rooms with two, three or four beds and some singles. All rooms have beds, a desk, a chair, a wardrobe and drawers.
