Learning House

Students are allocated to one of 5 Learning Houses of Lytton High School. Each house is led by a Dean who supports the students in terms of their academic and pastoral needs along with leading the group in competitive inter-house competition.

The Houses are named after native trees which symbolically provide specific significance to learning and development. While each House has particular characteristics, students are all part of the nourishment, shelter and guidance provided by all the characteristics of all the Houses. The whole forest is theirs to explore.

Each House has its own symbol and significance to learning:
