How the house system works
Students are allocated into the houses in whole form groups and learn which house they are in on Induction Day in school in July. Students wear PE kit with the colour which represents their house.
Students can earn house points for making progress in a subject, behaviour which reflects the school motto, their attitude to learning, showing a growth mindset, sustained excellence and extra-curricular activities from sports clubs to entering a cake-baking competition.
The house with the most points at the end of each term wins a prize - this could be a games afternoon for all students in that house. House winners are announced at every end of term Celebration Assembly, then the prize takes place during the following term.
Each half-term the top 5 students from each year group who have the highest amount of points from a selected house point category are invited to have breakfast croissants with members of our Senior Leadership Team.
