North Independent Secondary School of the Year 2020

The House System

A flourishing and strong house system

We encourage all pupils to engage with those outside their year group by active participation in a flourishing and strong house system. House events provide pupils with wide opportunities across a broad range of activities and, most importantly, they instil a desire to join in, have fun and make a contribution to the team. Weekly house assemblies celebrate members’ achievements and help create a sense of belonging.

Developing confidence and leadership skills

Our sixth form students are integral to the success of the houses, taking on leadership roles and organising events and teams. The house system presents a unique opportunity to develop confidence as students of all age groups compete alongside one another in a variety of fun events, ranging from popular sports to cooking or creative performance.

Each student in Senior School and Sixth Form is a member of one of the eight houses below. Sixth form students can apply for leadership roles in their house, with two house captains and four deputy house captains appointed to each house.
