Welcome to the House System.
"To inspire students to push themselves to not just be part of their house, but to proudly represent it!"
Every student at The Ridgeway School is part of the house system through the mentoring programme, everyday activities within lessons, and on a whole-school basis through competitions, activities, and challenges throughout the year. The main focus is for all students to take part in activities for not only themselves but also for their house.
As a house system, we wish to create an inclusive community where all students have a sense of belonging and pride. In this environment, we aim to build strong relationships through healthy competition. This would involve a school-wide approach, allowing student-student and staff-student networks to develop.
We achieve this by:
- Weekly house activities
- Events (two per term)
- Reward trips
- Trophies for house rewards
- Modelling healthy competition
- Healthy competition
