HDHS moved in September 2019 from running a community (“house”) system to a year group system for tutor groups.  Students remain affiliated to a community for some charitable occasions and for some sports competitions:
Red: Alhambra
Green: Heidelberg
Yellow: Versailles
Blue: Windsor.
However, for monitoring of progress and for pastoral care HDHS is organised into year groups overseen by Year Leaders.
Each child will have a dedicated tutor whom they will meet each morning during tutor time.  The tutor is the first point of contact for messages, attendance, progress and well-being.
