Each student is attached to one of four houses in which they remain during their five years at the school. Each house comes under the guidance of a Head of House who is supported by students who undertake roles such as House Captain.
The houses are named after outstanding Olympic athletes from the Yorkshire region with their hard work, dedication and achievements inspiring our students.
The houses are:
Adams House Named after Nicola Adams, boxer
Brownlee House Named after Alistair Brownlee, triathlete
Clancy House Named after Ed Clancy, cyclist
Ennis House Named after Jessica Ennis-Hill, pentathlete
The house system provides lots of opportunities for students in all year groups to take part in a wide variety of sporting, musical, artistic and cultural activities along with quizzes, competitions, trips and visits.
It also allows students to develop their leadership skills by helping to organise events, becoming house captain or vice-captain or by being elected for a position on the house council.
The house system is also an important part of how we reward and recognise our students for good attitudes, behaviour, citizenship, participation and for making a positive contribution to school life.
