House Groups are a way of creating a custom group of users. These groups are designed specifically to represent the house groups within the school. An example of one of these groups would be Year 7 English Language Set 1.
Each member of a group has their membership dates recorded. So when a user is added to a group, the start date is recorded and when they are removed the end date is recorded. This allows you to see a history of memberships to a group as well as view various reports for historical time frames.
