Celebrating individual and collective achievements is fundamental to creating our school ethos. Every student is allocated a school house when joining the school and can be awarded points throughout the school day for a variety of achievements such as attainment, effort and citizenship that are added to house totals at the end of each week. House competitions take place throughout each academic term and the points accumulated during these sporting, cultural and academic events help create an ethos of pride and respect from all, for all.
