Sacred Heart House System

Every pupil and staff member at Sacred Heart High School is assigned a house. The House System is designed to embody the values and ethos of the school and aims to be an integral part of our school community.

Objectives

•             To promote a sense of belonging and identity within the school community

•             To promote interaction between girls in different year groups

•             To increase opportunities for positions of responsibility and leadership

•             To operate a strongly student led/staff supported House system

•             To be an inclusive House system providing representative opportunities to all girls

•             To stimulate greater interest in extra-curricular activities

•             To develop girls’ social, intellectual and collaborative skills and overall well-being.

House Organisation

Pupils are assigned to one of the five houses on entrance to the school in Year 7 where they remain until the end of 6th form; where possible younger siblings will become a member of the same house.

Each member of staff is also attached to a house.

Each house has designated Year 12 House Captains, Year 10 Vice House Captains and Junior House Captains in addition to a Sports Captain and Vice Sports Captain who will act as representatives for all the students in their house throughout the year by: helping co-ordinate house teams, organise activities and events and represent their house at relevant assemblies and meetings.

House Activities

Every curriculum area provides at least one house activity organised throughout the year for year groups to enter. These activities are outlined on the school website calendar and will be advertised with further details on how to get involved given in form time over the year. Some events include, Charity Week, Sports Day, Inter House Netball, Inter House Debating, Year 8 Volcano Competition, Great Bake Off, Spelling Bee and Music/Drama Performances.  We also take on student suggestions as it is their House system and we want them to have ownership on it.
