We believe that introducing the new Vertical Tutoring system will foster a friendlier, more cohesive and supportive social environment, which would provide students with leadership opportunities.
For example, students from all Homerooms cooperate and work together on a number of House Challenges throughout the year, and this enables our House captains to guide and lead younger students.
The feedback and results so far have proven very positive and the implementation of the new Vertical Tutoring system has resulted in a unified community within our school community in which all the students are proud to belong and where students of different age groups can get to know each other better.
We believe that it's important that all students have the opportunity to demonstrate their talents, so we offer a wide range of Inter-House competitions: dodgeball, debating, spelling and much more). Additionally, at the beginning of each half term, a new House Challenge is launched in Assembly.
All students can also contribute to their House by collecting E-praise House points. Thanks to our on line reward system, students can work together to achieve success for their Houses.
Motivation is key and at the end of each half term we celebrate the House that has won the most points with a prize, such as a special school outing to the ice-rink, or a delicious celebratory breakfast!
