The House system is of great importance to college life.  Its function is to encourage healthy competition within school and to give all students the opportunity to participate in representative sport and other activities with the aim of raising self-esteem, developing self-confidence and giving opportunities for leadership and teamwork beyond those already available within the school.

Le Regent's education prepares students for entry to the leading Universities in the UK and US, and around the world.

A separate SAT program will be offered to those who wish to apply to US universities.
