The House System

Upon starting Kingshill, all pupils through their tutor groups are assigned to one of the three school houses; Meteor, Hurricane or Gauntlet. Throughout the year there are many different opportunities to earn house points. Examples include a Mathematics competition to design a poster on a famous Mathematician. In Humanities pupils are asked to design a volcano or motte and bailey castle model. In English pupils can participate in our successful accelerated reader programme and there are also a huge range of sporting competitions organised by the PE faculty including; rugby, netball, dance and softball to name but a few. Commitment to our extra-curricular Extend clubs programme also earns house points. House assemblies, led by the house captains of each house, inform pupils of the current totals and celebrate individual success in competitions. In the final assembly in the summer term the house shield is awarded to the house with the highest house points in each year group.
