What is a school house system?

The main function of the house system is to develop a sense of identity or belonging and to celebrate achievements. Each house symbol at BSG represents an era of British history.

It is important for students to have the opportunity to play an active role and contribute to a community within their school, which allows them to develop skills and talents and acknowledges their successes in a wide range of ways.

We encourage students to play an active role in the success of their house. Individual and team efforts are rewarded and students are expected to contribute to Inter-house competitions throughout the year. 

Instilling Healthy Competition

We host a number of events throughout the year to exercise enjoyment of friendly competition. These include; sports days, swimming galas, spelling bees, art and design challenges, plus specifically focused day events that curve their learning in new areas. For example, students in Years 7 to 9 took the roles of teachers, planning and delivering lessons to Year 4 children.
