The House System

A new House system is being launched as of September 2018. It aims to provide an even greater sense of community, competition as well as a range of new opportunities for students to get involved in school life and try new skills.

All students and members of staff are attached to one of the four Houses. Staff and students voted for the House names and chose to return to the original Emmbrook Houses which are as follows:

  • Mercury - Red
  • Saturn – Green
  • Jupiter - Yellow
  • Venus – Blue 

Every student in the school is identified within their Houses through their school ties which consist of a coloured stripe co-ordinating with their House colour.

Roles & Responsibilities

Each House is led by a sixth form House Captain and Vice Captain who is elected each year. The House Captains are supported by a Staff House leader and together they hold House assemblies each half term.
Every year group from year 7-11 has a House representative who liases with the House Captains and Sixth Form House representatives to help organise and plan inter-house year events. 
The House system is a central part of our school community, encompassing our school value of being a ‘family’. It unites students across each group, including the sixth form. It helps creates a sense of belonging and will involve a wide range of events, including within each faculty.
