All students and staff are allocated to a House. The four Houses take their names from famous people from the Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire area.
The House system encourages a sense of identity and collaboration. Each Tutor Group is aligned to one of the Houses and there is a number of House competitions organised each year to encourage cross-year collaboration and achievement.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I become a senior Student?
You have to complete an application form by having 10 sections signed off by your teachers. Your Head of House will then decide whether your application has been successful. Mrs McLardie will explain all of this in detail in an assembly in second half ofthe Spring Term when Year 11 students have begun their exams.
Who are Head Boy and Girl and what do they do?
Their names are Emma Clements and Jack Allsopp and are both in Year 13. Emma and Jack are here to represent you so if you have any concerns or ideas about the school see your School Council representative who will pass them on. Jack and Emma meet Mr Teal and the Senior Leadership team once a month to feedback your comments. They also represent the School at events in the community such as the service of Remembrance in November
What are Peer Mentors?
Peer mentors are students of your age, or older, who have been trained to support you. They are there to help and be an extra friend as they may have gone through the problem you currently have, for example friendship issues. Peer mentors have answers to many questions you may ask.
How many House Points does my House have?
Check it out when you pass House Base as they change daily!
What are the current merit totals?
Take a look on the board outside House Base. Is your house in the lead? If not, why not? Make sure you collect all your merits form your teachers and have them entered by your ‘merit monitor’ every Tuesday in Tutor Period
What is House base?
House Base is where all the Heads of House/Year are based. You might be asked to go there if we need to talk to you and this might be to say ‘well done’ or it might be to ask you to help us investigate an incident. Mrs Marshall manages the House Base and she is there to help you.
Where can I go for help?
Your tutor is the first person or your subject teacher if something happens in the lesson. Everyone is here to help you though and never be afraid to ask.
