Our House System
Ely College is organised into four 'Houses', each of which comprise of around 250 students, 12 tutor groups and 30 staff. Houses are responsible for monitoring and ensuring the welfare and progress of the students; each House has a distinct identity, but applies common structures and systems.
Siblings are assigned to the same House, but otherwise we work to balance the composition in terms of the backgrounds, interests and aptitudes of the students. Families become familiar over time with the House 'team' of staff, including the Senior Tutor and the non-teaching SSA (Student Support Assistant).
