The Weald Houses
Mrs P Robins Mr P Sweeney Mrs J Clayton Mr J Healy Mrs S Clarke
The school is structured into 5 houses; Wilberforce, Elgar, Austen, Livingstone, Darwin. Each has a non-teaching Head of House available for supporting students and parents. A house is made up of 11 small sized tutor groups between 21-24 students, with 4-5 from each year group.
The house system supports our community ethos across all year groups as students throughout the school work together to take part in house events ranging from assemblies, charity fundraising activities, sporting events, music, dance and drama events as well as the many extra-curricular clubs and activities in a normal week. All positive activities in any aspect of school can earn house points which lead to a termly cup and the grand House Cup awarded each year with much celebration and reward.
The House structure particularly develops the leadership skills of our students. Each year group has house reps that play a key role in the sporting, cultural events or in the running of the house or school councils. Our House Captains are important role models who organise, lead and motivate their peers. They are invaluable in their support and guidance within their house community.
We are very proud of the quality of care, support and guidance that all our students receive as they grow into young adults.
