Membership and roles Students are usually assigned to houses randomly, with the aim of balancing the houses in order to increase competition. Sometimes the assignment is based on the social and emotional needs of the student and to ensure proper peer mentoring is enhanced with the right fit of students within a house. One notable feature of the house system is the appointment of house captains, and other house prefects, who exercise limited authority within the house and assist in the organisation of the house. Members of staff are appointed as (or volunteer to become) head of house.
