Girls are placed in one of the six Houses during their first week at SCEGGS. Daughters, grand-daughters or sisters of Old Girls are assigned to the same House as their relative.
Community and House spirit is developed through regular House Meetings and a diverse range of inter-house competitions held throughout the year, including:
- Sports and Sports Carnivals
- General Knowledge
- Public Speaking
The girls run most House activities. In particular the House Prefects, Vice Captains, Sports Captains and other senior girls.
