House System

  • Developing competition and pride for one’s House
  • Developing opportunities for leadership
  • Promoting wider participation in a range of activities across the college’s provision

House Reward System         

Positive, caring and responsible behaviour is encouraged, valued and recognised within Christ the King College. We believe in living and learning together in a way that enables all of us to be happy, safe and to achieve the highest possible standards in our work. Teachers will recognise achievements by awarding House Credits for a particular piece of work, positive contribution or effort within our community.  House Credits will also be rewarded to students for being ‘Ready’, ‘Respectful’ and ‘Responsible’ in line with the College’s Living and Learning Together policy.

The House System is a strong vertical support structure, which will facilitate and promote relationships throughout the Year groups. It provides an additional strand for our young people to identify with peers, and both younger and older students for various communications.

The role of the student leaders within the system, is to encourage the community spirit, friendly competition and support within each House.  Overview of the House System is led by Mrs Stirling.

The winning House for the academic year will be determined a week before the end of the academic year.

Each student is a member of a Tutor Group which is wholly part of a House to offer support structures from both staff and older students. House events will take place throughout the year being led by student house leaders and specific staff at each event. 

‘Together we achieve - enjoy, take part and be proud!’
