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:

Barnard
Orange

Beaumont
Yellow

De Quincey
Green

Godwin

Holdgate

White

Lovell

Red

Waynflete

Purple

Wodhams

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.

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.
