Summerhill School

Summerhill School


Orion is a prominent constellation located on the celestial equator and visible throughout the world. It is one of the most conspicuous and recognizable constellations in the night sky. It was named after Orion, a hunter in Greek mythology. As part of Orion House you become a hunter and will develop all of the skills that make a great hunter.

“A hunter masters their skills, endures the conditions and acts with purpose, passion and patience.”

Most importantly being part of Orion House means you join our huge family; with vertical tutoring your daily routine will involve interaction, team building, icebreakers and fun activities with your ‘House Group’. You will make new friends and most importantly new ‘brothers’ and ‘sisters’ to guide, support and care for you on your journey at Summerhill.

Students at Summerhill School will always have fun with our dynamic house system, where every skill is tested and you will try things that you never thought you’d ever try, from limbo competitions, to fundraising events, sports competitions and talent shows. Orion House will continue to encourage fun, excitement and engagement in everything that we do.

‘House Tutors’ will support you throughout your time at Summerhill and help you become the very best person that you can be. They will offer you the very best pastoral care that you could ask for and be a constant for both students and parents.

Mr Allen, Head of Orion House

I am tremendously proud to be the Head of Orion House and will continue to build on a culture of loyalty, passion and respect that us ‘Hunters’ have regularly displayed in all School life. Orion House will continue to work hard and collaborate in all that we do, this will build a strong identity, ethos and bring our family closer together. Our students will be an integral part of driving this ethos and supporting all of the ‘Hunters’ young and old.

Please feel confident to contact me and my team if you have any issues, concerns or questions and we will be happy to talk to you.
