House System

The House System is a central part of life at the school. Every student as well as every member of staff is allocated to one of the four houses. The exceptions to this are the Leadership Team and House Coordinators to ensure impartiality. The houses are: Brunel (tangerine), Curie (purple), Faraday (turquoise) and Stephenson (lime green). There are two forms in each house. R and E are in Brunel (named after Isambard Kingdom Brunel), I and W are in Curie (named after Marie Curie), D and A are in Faraday (named after Michael Faraday) and G and Y are in Stephenson (named after George Stephenson).
