All students are placed into one of five houses: Gabor (Pink), Macaulay (Purple), Merry (Green), Whittle (Blue) or Turner.
The aim of the house system is to create the best possible ethos for students’ personal and social development and for the achievement of their potential in all aspects of college life. This is achieved through encouraging all students to take part in house activities and to give a sense of belonging and participation, whilst at the same time helping others less fortunate than themselves.
Gabor, Macauley, Merry and Whittle included 1 or 2 tutor groups from each year group, giving the house a vertical identity. Turner house is unique to our support students only who are based in the EFA.
The five houses compete with each other to win the annual house competition, the winning house being the one with the most points at the end of the Summer Term. Students also have the opportunity to represent their house and tutor group by being elected onto the Student Council.
