House System

There are four Houses - Austen (red), Bronte (blue), Du Pre (green) and Wollstonecraft (yellow) and each girl is allocated to a House as she joins the School. The Houses are led by Year 10,11 and 12 House Leaders and there are House meetings arranged during assembly times throughout the year.

There are sports competitions arranged during the year and the winners gain House Points. There are other competitions as well including the House Dance and Drama where everyone gets involved.

House Points

Your daughter will be able to earn house points for effort, as well as achievement and exceptional behaviour. A member of staff may give her a merit sticker for a particularly good piece of work or for being helpful in some way. These merits count as a House Point for her House and will be added up electronically. If your daughter produces an outstanding piece of work or achieve something particularly impressive, she will be given a Head of Year Commendation (3 House points) or a Head’s Commendation (5 House points), and a card of commendation will be sent to you.
