School House System
When pupils join us they are placed into one of eight houses with the pupils from their tutor group. They will remain in this house from years 7 to 11. Our Houses are all named after renowned people associated with the history of the school.
The eight houses and their house colours are:
There are House meetings and activities once per half term; as well as a range of different House competitions including Sports Day at the end of the school year.
Pupils can achieve House Points in lots of different ways. They are awarded as follows:
Excellent response to feedback
Showing Good Manners
Positive contribution to the wide life of the school
100% attendance each term
LoL Behaviour Bonus
House points can be used to purchase small rewards from the school online catalogue. Rewards include stationery equipment, jump the lunch queue vouchers, treats from the school canteen and Year 11 Prom tickets. Pupils can choose to spend or save their house points for larger items as the points are carried over from year to year. At the end of year 11 any unspent house points can be donated to the school charities for that year.
House of the Month
Our house of the month for March was De Quincey house who also earned enough house points over the term to win an additional mufti day.
