Ashcroft High

House system

House system

The house system supports the ethos of the Ashcroft family.

Students are assigned to one of the four Houses on entrance to the school in Year 7 and remain in this House until they leave at the end of Year 11. Most students with siblings at the school will join the House of their older brother or sister.

The four houses at Ashcroft are:

Faraday

 

Holmes

 

Rowling

 

Shackleton

 

Inter-house Competitions

Each week the attendance, achievement points and behaviour of all students contribute to the inter-house competition.

Bonus points can be gained through participation in a wide variety of competitions and activities that are run across the school.

Some of the competitions planned for 2020-2021 include:

  • Photography
  • Design a computer game
  • Inter-house Debate
  • Inter-house Quiz
  • Scrabble
  • Inter-house sport events
  • Sports Day
  • Science Week
