Boys are placed into one of the four school Houses on entry to the school. This vertical tutor system is a key part of FBS life. Inter-house challenges in sport, music and drama brings students together across year groups, building bonds and encouraging all boys to learn to work together and develop leadership skills.
Each house has form tutors who are a constant point of contact for parents, as boys remain in the same House throughout their time at school.
As well as leading assemblies, teaching RE, leading PHSCE and overseeing the Christian ethos programme, the school’s chaplain meets with every boy at least once a year. He supports boys in lessons and gets to know them at break times and lunch times.
