The House System

Falconer operates a house system, with students organised into three houses. Student in Years 7 – 11 wears a pin badge denoting the colour of their house on their blazer. This helps to generate a sense of house identity within the school community.

The Houses

Kestral – Mrs Greenwood

Merlin – Mr Dennemont

Peregine – Mr Cunningham

During the year, the houses compete in a series of events to win points for their house. These include

  • House Spelling
  • House numeracy
  • House ‘Performing Arts’ competition
  • Top of the Form
  • House Day
  • Sports Day
  • Fun Run
  • Football tournament

Students can also add to their house totals through earning house points for excellent work and effort and a range of other smaller activities organised throughout the year.

Earning house points

There are many activities running through the school year for students to contribute to their House. Each house point awarded to students automatically adds to the house total and these are recorded by the students and given to Heads of House to be entered in the system. For the large events, such as Sports Day, House Arts and the Fun Run points are awarded based on finishing positions. Students can also gain House Points for taking part in extra-curricular activities, for representing the school and for participating in many enrichment activities.

The house competition is about participation and working together with students from all year groups. It provides students with opportunities to be a leader either by being House Captain or being elected as House Leader or even taking responsibility to help lead a specific activity or event. The houses also work hard to raise funds for charities that are selected by each house on an annual basis.

Voting new House Captains and Vice-Captains

At the beginning of the academic year, we meet in our houses to vote for our Captain and Vice-Captain. This is a democratic process that is richly embedded within the school. Students have the opportunity to have their voices heard through our Student Council, student questionnaires, meeting with the Headteacher and through being a Head Boy, or Peer Mentor. v1
