Our House System is based around five houses that are all linked to Religious Orders which are located in Sussex . The House system is vertical incorporating one form per year for each House. We believe that charity work is a vital aspect of our House system and each House has a charity attached to it which we aim to raise money in a variety of ways throughout the academic year. Competitions range from Quizzes, Caption Competitions. Business & Enterprise Quizzes, Subject Competitions, Photography Competitions, Fairtrade Competitions plus more! Each House also offers the opportunity to raise money for their respective House Charity.
House Rewards System
Our House System is used in the school to promote achievement of the students in its widest forms in a totally positive way, from the classroom to the sports field and helping out around the school to drama productions. It is promoted by positive competition and by committed and experienced staff leaders of the five Houses.
All students can collect House Points for achievement in one of the many areas as outlined below. These go direct onto their student record and are not marked as ACE points. If a student finishes in the Top 20 as the highest house point achiever in the school then they could be in line to receive the one Outstanding Contribution to School Life Award.

All ACE points from 250 onwards are doubles towards the house system…. this will be doubled by the administration staff! If a student receives a platinum award, their name will go in to a draw run by the Leadership Team to claim a free place to Thorpe Park (even if their house does not win the overall competition). If you are also part of the winning house that is going to Thorpe Park then you will get the reward of ‘priority passes’ at Thorpe Park.
