House System

The House system at Peninsula Grammar has long been an integral feature of our School with the names of the six Houses honouring the founders of the School; Ansett, Carr and Newton; the School’s first Headmaster, Clarke and the two original Houses, Town which comprised the students from the 'town' (at that time, Frankston) and Country for the students from regional Victoria.

The House system creates smaller communities where students form a connection and build a sense of belonging regardless of their year level. At Peninsula the success of our House system is due to the extensive opportunities provided to students to interact in their House communities, to support each other and to work towards common goals. Our House-based activities include swimming, athletics, a music performance, debating, public speaking, assemblies, art, chess and many more.
