A few years ago Glencairn decided to introduce 4 houses (Skye, Lewis, Bute and Harris) with captains and vice captains voted by their fellow pupils. The captains collect house points weekly which are counted prior to the Friday assembly. The winning house gets a star on their house board. At the end of each year the house with the most stars celebrates with a reward. To date, Lewis have won twice and Bute once.
