Houses[edit]

The state school originally had 4 houses, Curie, Cavell, Bronte and Keller, each named after famous women in history. The school recently changed these houses to 3 new houses, named Seacole, Roddam and Austen. Each house has a colour, Seacole-green, Roddam-yellow and Austen-red with a house captain from the sixth form assigned to each house. There are many events throughout the year in which the houses compete against each other to win the event, or in individual categories. These include competitions such as House Drama and House Music, and also includes regular school events such as sports day.

Head Girl Team[edit]

The Head Girl Team makes an invaluable contribution to the running of this school. Currently, the Head Girl is Miss Hannah Bourne, and the Deputies are Miss Raveena Jawanda, Miss Eleanor Holbrook, and Miss Georgia Naik.
