All students and teachers will be allocated to one of four houses – London, Belfast, Edinburgh, Cardiff. The house shield will be awarded to the House that has the most points from a combination of the Athletics Carnival, Battle of the Bands, and other house activities as well as the VES Merit ​Points.

House Captains are elected from Grades 10 & 11 and work closely with the Staff House Coordinator and House Prefects. Captains are responsible for promoting house spirit, designating a house charity and ensuring maximum participation in all events by all students. They also encourage students to attain ​merit​ points that contribute towards the house shield.
