House System

The House system is was relaunched in September 2019. Based around the world-famous Rainhill Trials, each house is connected to the railway history of the village by name.

  • Rocket – White
  • Sans Pereil – Yellow
  • Stephenson – Purple
  • Perseverance – Green

The purpose of the Houses is to recognise the day to day contributions to the school community but also to recognise and celebrate extraordinary achievements and contributions through a House point system. Everyone is included, everyone makes a contribution.

Events are run throughout the year by all faculties, year groups and Houses; a number include charity work and other good causes. Students are actively encouraged to participate in activities that promote a positive school culture within and beyond the school day, this may be part of the events team, faculty buddies or the local community support group.

The House system will drive our rewards system. Students will receive points for:

  • participating in House events
  • participating in enrichment/extra-curricular events
  • making a contribution to the wider school/community
  • demonstrating leadership and initiative
  • making a difference to others
  • work in lesson
  • attitude to learning
  • Form Tutor 5
  • Points are accumulated by students throughout the year and during House assemblies. Students will be recognised and rewarded from their efforts.
  • Further information regarding House events will be included in the parent’s newsletter in September.
