House System

The school has benefitted from a fantastic house system. The houses give the students a sense of belonging and pride through participation in feast days, competitions, charity events, department house challenges and much more! Each house is under the patronage of a Saint and the students are encouraged to learn about the life of the Saint.

Each student has a badge identifying their House group.  The badges are presented to the incoming Year 7 by their Head of House and belonging to this vertical House group nurtures a sense of belonging and identity.  At House assemblies the virtues of the House Saint are promoted and all members of the House are encouraged to emulate the virtues of their patronal Saint.

We encourage student leadership and members of the Sixth Form are invited to apply for positions of House Captain in the course of Year 12.  Once they assume responsibility, and following leadership training, they play a role in supervision by having a lunchtime duty.  They play a leading role in House assemblies and celebrations and lead fund raising activities for the dedicated House Charity.  All these experiences are founded in a spirit of servant leadership consistent with our school mission.    Students are proud to refer to these experiences as they make their applications to Higher Education, Apprenticeships and the world of work.

School competitions take place across House groups.  This includes:

  • A range of sporting activities  

  • Spelling Bee

  • Maths Challenge

  • Cooking

  • Debating
