Add, change or remove Head of House

Although there is a business role for Head of House, assigning this business role will not link the staff to the students (for example for My Homepage).

To assign someone as a Head of House you must link them to the house. Once you have assigned these, you can use them all over Arbor! Send Mail Merges to students’ heads of house, or choose to notify them when a behaviour incident is logged.


You will need the School: Pastoral Structure: Administer permission to manage houses. If you don't have the permission, you'll need to ask your admin team to give you permission using these instructions.


Where to go

Edit other pastoral leads such as Head of House from Students > Enrolment > Pastoral. Just select Houses from the left-hand menu.

Make sure you select the right year from the drop-down menu, then select the group you want to edit.



Adding a new head

Click +Add to add a new staff member.



Add the staff member and select the dates, then click Add Tutor.



Removing a head

Click into the staff member.



Click Edit in the slide over.



  • If the staff member was incorrectly assigned, click Delete.
  • If the staff member used to be Head of House but is no longer, edit the dates and click Save Changes.



Can we assign other staff to houses?

It isn't possible to add staff to houses outside of making them a Head of House.
