Teme

Teme House is a happy and vibrant home to some 65 boys across all year groups. Standing proudly at the front of the school, Teme is the first House visitors see on arriving at Lancing, closest to the Chapel and the sports fields that can be seen from many of its windows.

As the home to former Head Masters of Lancing until 1947, Teme is spacious, full of character and charm with a majestic entrance hall and stair case where House sports trophies are proudly displayed.

There is a strong collegiate ethos in Teme which develops a sense of service for the House and for the whole school community. When pupils first arrive in the Third Form, the Housemaster, Mr Grime, together with the warm and friendly support team, encourage them to become a ‘jack of all trades and master of some’, embracing all the opportunities available at Lancing and begin to master those they enjoy most.

Pupils actively participate in inter-House activities and competitions, recently putting in notable performances in chess, the league run, basketball, music and athletics.

The facilities and accommodation are structured to ensure that younger pupils benefit from getting to know each other and making friends; in the Sixth Form, once friendships have developed, the focus is to provide personal space and an individual study area.

Pupils come together frequently during the day and over weekends in the common room, kitchen, and a new dedicated games room. These are also where the whole House comes together for registration, break times, relaxing and celebrating birthdays and House successes.
