House Systems

All students and teachers at Grey High School belong to one of six Houses. The Houses are competitive and are largely student-led, under the direction of a Housemaster. From the outset, students are encouraged to be actively involved in supporting and representing their House in a variety of competitions, from sports to public speaking to raising money for charity. Each House takes pride in its own traditions and successes.

There are five Day Houses and two Boarding Houses, although the Boarding Houses are collectively seen as one House, Meriway House.
