House System

Thorpedene House Teams

  • The advantages of the house system are infinite. Houses provide not only an increased feeling of identity and belonging, they also provide pupils with a sense of tradition and abundant leadership opportunities.
  • The House System is designed to embody the values and ethos of the school and aims to be an integral part of our school community. The aim is that the House Captains and the School Council will work together creating a stronger pupil voice to motivate students and further the community spirit of the school.
