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, House Charityand House Music, and also includes regular school events such as sports day.
