House system

When students join Chessington School, they are put into one of four houses; Phoenix, Pegasus, Dragon and Griffin House. Siblings join the same house group. There are regular House and inter-House activities and competitions throughout the year.  House meetings are held fortnightly. All members of the teaching staff are assigned to a House and offer support. Pupils are expected to take part in activities and support the Captains in an appropriate fashion.

The House system adds more healthy competition as well as motivation and offers competitions such as Spelling Bees, the Great Chessington Bake Off and more.

In July 2019, Griffin House won the Sports Day Cup, taking it from Phoenix who won it in 2018.
