The school operates a house system, whereby students are divided up into four houses (each of which are in turn split into two), which are named after traditional trees, which are then broken down into 2 tutor groups for each house per year. The tutor groups are named after Greek letters. Each House is led by a member of staff and run by Year 12 and 13 House Presidents & Vice Presidents. They are supported by House Captains from Years 10 and 11. All staff members belong to a house, as do all Sixth Formers:

Elm Omega and Gamma
Oak Theta and Beta

The houses were previously named after rivers and were Kennet, Lambourn, Loddon and Embourne.


The main library and sixth form library are situated together in a central area of the school (the main building). Both include private study areas. The school has a book stock of over 12,000 items. The library is currently run by the school librarian and 4-6 students who have been picked to be library monitors. Inside the library there are computers for educational uses. Often students use these during lessons and break times. The school is also a member of Newbury Library which facilitates inter-library loaning.
