Preston Manor

An All-Through Co-Operative School

    House System

    The Elements – Preston Manor’s House System

    We have recently set up a House System to run alongside the standard Form and Year Group format in order to generate and promote the following characteristics:

    *Pride – the pride of belonging to a House, and forging allegiances with new and different groups of students

    *Teamwork – from working with students from other year groups with a common aim

    *Leadership Skills - managing and coordinating, taking a lead role in a project, quiz, tournament or competition

    *Healthy competition – learning the valuable life skills of ‘humble in victory and magnanimous in defeat’

    *Citizenship - seeing beyond school, working on charity fund-raising events and projects

    We have chosen The Elements as both the theme and the name of the four houses: Earth, Air, Fire and Water and the structure of the houses is as follows:

    •         Each form will be in the same House, with other forms from different years; a full mixture…

    •         Staff will also be assigned a House; tutors will be allied to their forms, and other staff will be distributed equally…

    •         Each HOUSE will have a VI Form House Captain…

    •         Each HOUSE will have a motto linked to its element…

    •         Each HOUSE will sponsor a linked charity…

    •         Year-round competitions and events between HOUSES, culminating in SPORTS DAY…
