House System 

The House System comprises of four Houses: Challenger, Discovery, Endeavour and Voyager. Each House is overseen by a Head of House and the system as a whole is managed by the CAS Co-ordinator. Each House is made up of the following Tutor Groups and their Form Tutors.

All Year 12 and Year 13 students will remain members of the house they have been in throughout their time at the Academy. External students joining the Sixth Form will belong to their tutor group house as shown above. All staff are attached to one of the houses.

The aims of our House system are:

  1. To facilitate inter-House competition covering creative, active, community and cultural activities.
  2. To provide opportunities for vertical groupings of students with posts of responsibility for older students.

Students in years 7-9 are able to earn house points which are recorded in their diaries. Students in all years are also able to earn house points through the ‘praise email’ system and through and taking part in house competitions.
