What is the House system?
All pupils and members of staff are in one of four Houses. The Houses are named after local sporting heroes (Jason) Robinson, (Jane) Tomlinson, (Fred) Trueman and (Billy) Bremner.
Pupils in Robinson wear a purple tie, Tomlinson wear a green tie, Trueman a yellow tie and Bremmer a blue tie. These ties are given to pupils when they start with us.
Throughout the year we run a variety of House activities to encourage healthy competition between pupils. These include charity weeks, where each House raises money for their chosen charity, sports days and end of term competitions such as tug-of-war and ‘old-school’ style sports days.
Pupils can earn ePraise points for their House in lessons, coaching and for other activities, such as attending clubs, intervention classes and representing the school.
At the end of the school year, the House with the most points is presented with the coveted House trophy.
