The houses were named after ancient or near ancient civilizations with an historic reputation for robustness and conquest.
On entry to Rutlish each boy is allocated to one of Eight Houses and they remain in this house for the duration of their time at school. (from Rutlish School The First Hundred Years by C. Brock.)

Ms. M. Khan – Extension 183
I am proud to be leading the Rutlish House system that is integral to building an ethos of pride, healthy competition and a sense of achievement amongst the students.
The House system encourages a supportive atmosphere; students’ awareness of self; their relationships; their opinions and morals along with a desire to support their team members in participating and winning varied competitions. This in turn feeds into the general wellbeing of students.
I believe that every student can, and should, achieve goals that they are proud of. We must all strive for the best, and in doing so better ourselves!
Alongside the House Leader post, I teach English at KS3 and GCSE level. I hope that my students will not only benefit from learning English Literature and language skills for the exam, but also learn skills which will benefit them in their life beyond the school.
