The House system is now an integral part of school life, with tutor groups renamed and striking images of influential people around the school. The House system allows every student, member of staff and governor to feel a sense of belonging by being a member of Liberty, Unity, Inspire, Equality or Honour:
- Promoting wider participation in a range of activities across the schools provision.
- To promote vertical interaction between students of different ages and thereby enhance the pastoral life of the school.
- Developing competition and pride for one’s House.
- Developing opportunities for leadership.
By being a member of the House family, students and staff are encouraged to show team spirit as all of the Houses thrive on the ethos of “it’s the taking part that counts”.
Each House is made up of two tutor groups from each year team which are overseen by a devoted Head of House. With regular House assemblies and competitions taking place this vertical gathering and participation breaks down barriers between the year groups and creates a sense of togetherness; encouraging the older students to get to know and support the younger ones (and vice versa).
There are many house events throughout the year from all areas of school life. The events are designed to bond all members of each House to be as one. Remember, “Together we Achieve”
