All students are placed into one of four houses: Godiva (Blue), Webb Ellis (Yellow) Shakespeare (Purple) or Whittle (Red).

The aim of the house system is to create the best possible ethos for students’ personal and social development and for the achievement of their potential in all aspects of college life. This is achieved through encouraging all students to take part in house activities and to give a sense of belonging and participation, whilst at the same time helping others less fortunate than themselves. Older students are encouraged to play a nurturing role to create a family atmosphere.

The four houses compete with each other to win the annual house competition, the winning house being the one with the most points at the end of the Summer Term. Students in the winning house have the opportunity of taking part in a house trip in October. Students can gain House Achievement Points in a number of ways including effort in lessons, sport, charity events, reading competition, full attendance, examination results, various department competitions, etc. Students can also gain house points if their uniform is consistently worn correctly. The efforts of individual students and groups of students in each house are recognised in an awards ceremony at the end of the Summer Term.

Students also have the opportunity to represent their house and tutor group by being elected onto the Year Council. If they flourish at this, they can stand for Year President and sit on the full College Council chaired by the Head Boy and Head Girl.
