House system

At Grimsdell your child will be placed in one of our three houses Beech, Oak or Willow.

The House System is the latest addition to our Pastoral care. It has been designed to embody the values and ethos of our school and aims to be an integral part of our school community.  It will help promote hard work and good behaviour and our aim is to provide every pupil in each house with the following:

  • a sense of belonging within the school community
  • opportunities to develop social, intellectual, physical and practical skills
  • a sense of achievement both inside and outside of the classroom
  • fun and excitement through competition
  • opportunities for leadership
  • an awareness of individual and collective responsibility

The pupils will have opportunities to make friends across year groups, take part in fun competitions and events and enjoy the joint pursuit of the elusive House Cup at the end of the year.
