The House System

Our House system was launched in September 2016 and supports our School ethos that everything we do should be worth of great merit, character and value. The House System gives our pupils even more opportunities to contribute to the school community, whilst developing friendships and teamwork across pupils of all ages.

Each House is made up of at least one Form Group from each Year Group and pupils attend House Assemblies every half term. House Enrichment Days take place across the year and there are a range of competitions and events taking place all year round.

Each House is run by a Staff House Captain, who organises House events, competitions and assemblies. Pupils are able to earn House Points for actions, efforts, achievements and competitions throughout everyday school life and these are added to their House total, with a weekly House ranking published each week in the School Newsletter.

Every pupil belongs to a House, and pupils will be told which House they are joining before the Summer holidays. Each House has its own colour, and this is reflected in pupils’ ties. 

Our pupils are very proud of their Houses and we hope you enjoy all the events and activities they have to offer.
