All students are allocated to one of the four Houses on joining the school: Trojans, Vikings, Spartans and Romans. Whilst the House System helps to give new students a sense of identity and belonging, it also provides opportunities for involvement in a wide range of activities such as House Competitions and Sports Day. House Forums are held on a regular basis as part of the school’s assembly calendar and, on such occasions, year groups in the same House are able to meet. The house system encourages collaboration, team work and co-operation while nurturing a healthy sense of competition.
Every year the House Comps are a focal point of our inter-house activities, bringing together the different Performing Arts disciplines of Art, Drama, Music and Dance. Students from Years 7, 8 and 9 compete in the Junior House Comps, while the students in Years 10 and 11 battle it out in the Senior House Comps. Not only do these events help to develop students' confidence and self-esteem, but they also help to form new friendships with a shared desire to win.
