try hard

Our House System has been in place since 2012. It has the following aims:
• A drive in Academic Standards
• Developing Student Leaders
• Creating Dynamic Competition

When the house system was created a democratic vote, all decided by the students, led to the creation of our 4 Houses, named after stars: Castor, Omega, Polaris and Sirius.
We quickly developed a team of student leaders who mentor others, create competitions and support the school in a range of ways. Staff too are all affiliated to Houses and this helps maintain the camaraderie around school.
The ethos behind the House System is really clear, it is a vehicle that provides opportunities both in and out of the classroom, having a real impact in the school community.
