The House system at King’s Ely is central to the life of every student. From the start, students develop a strong allegiance to their House; it’s a place to make friends, a retreat between lessons and the hub of House competition, whether it be debating, sport, music or outdoor pursuits. All Houses represent the full spectrum of the personalities, characters and talent found across the school.

All King’s Ely Senior, students are allocated to one of eight day and boarding Houses. Houses take responsibility for leading worship in the cathedral, fund-raising for charity, and organising social events, allowing everyone the opportunity to experience the fun and the challenge of working as a team and engaging with students in all year groups, including Sixth Form.
