House System

In 2016 the house system was reintroduced to Oak Heights School and is now an integral part of our pastoral organisation. The house system allows every student and member of staff to feel a sense of belonging by becoming a member of Dragon, Griffin, Lion, Phoenix or Unicorn’s house. By being a member of the house family, students and staff are encouraged to show team spirit as all of the houses thrive on the ethos of “it’s the taking part that counts”.

Each student has a coloured crest badge that represents the house that they are in. Each house is made up of nine tutor groups which are overseen by a devoted and much loved Head of House. Tutor groups are vertical and are made up of students from all years in the school. This breaks down barriers between the year groups and creates a sense of togetherness; encouraging the older students to look out for the younger ones.

There are many house events throughout the year from all areas of school life. This blend ensures that everyone has the opportunity to represent their house in something that they enjoy or are good at. For example house events include; various sporting activities, cultural activities, cooking for charity and various quizzes throughout the year based on things such as Diabetes Week, antibullying week or European Week of Languages. Staff lead by example and take part in exactly the same events as the students. These competitions regularly attract crowds of supporters cheering for their house.
