The house system is a traditional feature of British, Australian, Hong Kong and Singaporean schools, similar to the collegiate system of a university. Historically it was associated with established public schools, where a 'house' refers to a boarding house or dormitory of a boarding school. In the case of a day school, however, the word 'house' refers only to a grouping of pupils, rather than to a particular building. The house system has been common in the state sector for many years. ...more on Wikipedia about "House system"
An Independent school in the United Kingdom is a school that relies for all or most of its funding on non-governmental sources. The school has full control over admissions and, within the constraints of law, its curriculum. There are more than 2,500 independent schools in the UK, educating about 620,000 children. There are also now City Academies which are nominally independent schools, although they are non fee-paying and are publicly funded and run. They must have regard to the same code of practice for admission as maintained schools, so cannot select beyond the 10% aptitude rule. ...more on Wikipedia about "Independent school (UK)"

School Boards in Scotland are involved in determining the overall policies, objectives and ethos at the school. Boards have a special duty to promote good relationships between the school, its parents and the community and also form a channel for the flow of information between these groups. School Boards were introduced in 1988 as part of the Govemment's policy of encouraging parental involvement in schools. They comprise parent, teacher and 'co-opted' members with parents in the majority. 'Co-opted' members may be drawn from local business or the community. ...more on Wikipedia about "School board (Scotland)"
