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.)

Winners of the House Shield 2018 – 2019 were Trojans, with Argonauts very narrowly beating Romans to get second place.
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 students.
The House system promotes a sense of belonging, identity and solidarity amongst the boys at Rutlish. The aim of the system is to promote participation and bonding across all year groups through a healthy and fun outlet for the boys within school.
I believe that through House events and competitions, teachers and students can take an active part in school life which maintains a positive atmosphere throughout the entire Rutlish community.
Alongside the House Leader post, I teach Religious Education at KS3 and GCSE level and Sociology at A Level.
