New House System

New House System

We launched our exciting new house system this September. Our four houses are named after 4 Oxbridge colleges with British birds (Finches, Kestrels, Swifts and Goldcrests) as their logos. This year our houses will raise money for Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice.

Introducing the House Captains selected from Year 13, who are:

Vice house Captains will be selected from Year 12 ,as well as house representatives from each form group from Years 7-11. The house system will provide more competitions and activities for students to get involved in, as well as opportunities for students to take on leadership roles in our school.  Our first house Visual Arts event is on 21st October and other exciting events this year will include:  Business Dragons Den-style competition, MFL Spelling Bee, English poetry slam, Music and Dance competitions and House sports competitions. Well done to everyone who has worked hard to achieve Vivos, which have been added to the overall house points. Somerville are the early leaders and this half term, every reward including outstanding work, improvement and punctuality are worth double points. Also, watch out for extra earner bonuses and have fun spending your Vivos and making sure your house is the best!
