Houses

Our House system is a central feature of the school. There is very strong affiliation from pupils to their House, excellent levels of engagement in inter-House activities, a strong culture of pupils organising and taking part in activities to raise money for charity and strong competition to win the House Cup.

Key elements of the House system are as follows:

  • Each house is comprised of two tutor groups from Years 7 to Year 11
  • There is a very strong emphasis on House and inter-House competitions
  • Each House competes for the Inter-House cup
  • House points are awarded for a wide variety of achievements. This could be for excellent effort or work during a lesson, helpfulness around the school, excellent homework, commitment and leadership in tutor groups or clubs and individual or team achievements
  • There is a very strong emphasis on leadership through the Houses, with many opportunities for students to act as Junior Leaders
  • Each House elects House Captains and have a House Council that feeds into the School Council
  • Students wear House ties identified with their House colours
  • There are House assemblies each week, as well as year assemblies as appropriate
  • Social areas are available for both House and Year Group use at break and lunchtimes
