Merton College London is organised around 5 houses, namely Venus, Luppiter, Mercurius, Mars, Saturnus. Every academic staff member and student belong to a house. A house is led by the Head of House, who is responsible for the overall wellbeing of all students in the house.
Every student is informed of their house name upon registration, and they will belong to the same house during the whole duration of their time at Merton College London. This enforces their identity as a house member and they receive academic support and pastoral care from their tutors and Head of House.
During term time, students gain and collect house points by participating in inter-house competitions. The house that achieves the most house points at the end of an academic year receive a prestigious award from the school management team.
