A House System is a traditional feature of schools in which a school is divided into Houses and each student belongs to a House.
At St. Hild’s Church of England School our House System aims to embody academic, pastoral, artistic, sporting, spiritual and cultural achievement and challenge students to extend themselves through both effort and achievement.
Currently students from Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 are House Representatives of a House. Siblings represent the same House.
There are House Meetings for House Representatives held for every Half-Term for each House with their Head of House. Staff, as well as being a tutor, associated with a Year Group or simply a member of school staff, also belong to a House.
There are FOUR Houses each led by the following Head(s) of House:
St Aidan’s St Bede’s St Cuthbert’s St Oswald’s
Miss Dar Mrs Shearer Miss Scutt Mrs Stainthorpe
Each House has a male and female House Captain and Vice-Captain from Year 10 to support a Head of House.
Within each House there is a male and female House Representative Leader from Year 7, 8 and 9.
The House Cup
Houses compete with one another in a range of House Cup competitions and events throughout an academic year. There are THREE House Cup weeks:
- Monday 5th December - Friday 9th December 2016
- Monday 27th February - Friday 3rd March 2017
- Monday 3rd July - Friday 7th July 2017
Sporting competitions will take during the school day. Other competitions, events and challenges will take place after school.
House Points are awarded during each House Cup competition or event that takes place during a designated House Cup Week. House Points are also awarded termly based on Reward Figures, Behaviour, Attendance, Cause for Praise and Head Teachers Commendations.
House Hero points and House Legend points may be awarded for exceptional achievements. A Head of House can only nominate students for these points and a decision to award House Hero or House Legend points is made by the House System Co-ordinator.
