The House System

The House system is designed to promote the values and ethos of Churchill Community College. It provides an opportunity for students to take part in extra-curricular activities which they may not usually be a part of. The House system forms a link between the different age groups allowing them to work and compete against others.

House Objectives

Our aim is to provide students with the following:

  • A sense of belonging within the school community
  • Fun and excitement through a range of competitions
  • Allow students to have a sense of achievement inside and outside of the Classroom
  • Provide opportunities for students to develop leadership and teamwork.

House Organisation

We have a House structure made up of 6 Houses, each named after local castles.

Alnwick

Bamburgh

Dunstanburgh

Ford

Lindisfarne

Warkworth

Students are assigned to one of the six houses at the start of Year 7 where they will remain until they leave Churchill Community College.

Members of staff are also assigned to a House coming together for events such as Sports Day.

How To Earn House Points

There are different ways students can achieve points which go towards the total at the end of the year, for example;

  • House activities- Such as fundraising we were able to raise over £1,000 for Children Need this year.
  • Behaviour Points- Points received throughout the year are totalled in each House and contribute to the final result.
  • Extra-Curricular- Taking part in House sporting competitions.

Students are allocated their House in Year 7 and will be in this up until they leave Churchill Community College. To highlight which House students are in the name on their jumper represents the House which they are part of. Form classes have mixed Houses, with students coming together for fundraising and House competitions such as competing in sports competitions and taking part in extra-curricular activities to raise points for their House. At the end of the academic year the points for each House are totalled and the House with the highest points are awarded the House trophy.
