We believe that outstanding pastoral care is essential for students to achieve their true potential.
The school is divided into 4 houses which compete throughout the year across all aspects of achieve, belong and participate.
Our House Ethos
The house system allows every student and member of staff to feel a sense of belonging by becoming a member of Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald or Topaz house. By being a member of the house, students and staff are encouraged to show team spirit as all of the houses thrive on the ethos of “achieve, belong and participate”. Each student has a house tie which they wear with pride that represents the house that they are in.
There are many house events throughout the year from all areas of school life. This blend ensures that everyone has the opportunity to represent their house in something that they enjoy or are good at. For example house events include; various sporting activities, academic activities, practical and vocational activities and the ePraise House Trophy.
All students have the opportunity to earn Merits for their house. These are awarded for things such as good work, attendance, for being a good citizen, contribution to lessons and participation in house competitions. At the end of the academic year all house merits are added up and one house wins the overall house trophy.
