We have a thriving house system at King James’s that encourages team spirit increases the sense of community and belonging encourages friendships among students of different ages provides a focus for rewarding students for their achievements.
When students arrive at the school they join one of our four houses
Each form group belongs to a particular house, as indicated by its name
(e.g. 7S1 is a Swaledale form). Our house system provides an opportunity for younger and older students from the same house to mix.
The school has a long and proud tradition of house competition – not just in sporting endeavour, but also in drama, dance and music.
House events in 2022/23 included:
Benchball (Year 8)
Accelerated Reader (Year 7)
Each house has a Head of House and House Captains who help to organise teams and support students. House points are added up throughout the year and the overall winning house is awarded a trophy at the end of year assembly.
