House System

House system is a traditional mode of operation of medieval universities in Britain. It is not simply an educational entity or a place to provide accommodation, but a sports, communication and livable activity center for students. Oxford University, Cambridge University and Durham University in UK all adopt the house system.
Adcote School in Shanghai has inherited the tradition of academic system of Adcote School in UK and established four houses. Each house is composed of students of different grades. Freshmen are assigned to their respective houses after enrollment. Captain management mode is implemented within the house system. Each house has a Captain and Vice Captain to jointly manage the house by electing its cadres.
The school has house integrals, which are accumulated in the academic year and cleared at the end of the academic year. Students take the house as the unit to participate in all kinds of activities and competitions, and strive for honor for their respective houses. When students receive points in their daily activities, they will also be reflected in the house points.
The adoption of house system is not only a kind of inheritance of elite culture, but also an innovative attempt of "taking the old students with the new ones", which helps to cultivate students'leadership and explore the characteristics of leaders. At the same time, it can strengthen students' sense of collective honor and enhance their sense of teamwork.
