Secondary Houses

A system has been introduced across the whole school in order to achieve and embed the following principles:

  • To involve all students in the House community in a wide range of positive,enrichment activities which allows them to develop their confidence and self esteem.
  • To build a community within each House
  • To build healthy competition and a sense of pride in the House
  • To further develop the students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding and awareness
  • To provide opportunities for students to learn from other year groups and their experiences
  • To provide role models for the younger students
  • To develop leadership opportunities throughout the school

All of the above related directly to improvements in student progress and Achievement. 

There are four Houses: 





The House system will give all students the opportunity to participate in House celebration assemblies, charity events, mentoring programmes, enrichment activities and competitions. House points will be awarded in a range of ways such as good attendance, citizenship, participation in extra-curricular activities, representation in sports teams and tournaments or other school events.

Assigning students to Houses

During the summer term, The Bay CE School Induction Team visits our primary schools in order to gather as much information as possible to aid a smooth and successful transition. Students are placed into a tutor group and will also be placed into a House. As far as possible, we aim to place siblings in the same House but this cannot always be guaranteed.

House Charities

Students in each House choose a charity to fundraise for at the start of the academic year. All of the Houses were incredibly successful in their fundraising efforts last year. 

Students in Blue House chose to fundraise for Young Lives v Cancer, CLIC Sargent. The Blue House student council worked tirelessly to plan the community day. There was a mufti-day, mince pie bake off and sale, a huge raffle and ‘Challenge Santa’ sports events. The day ended with over 100 students and staff taking part in Blue House Quiz. A total of £1198 was raised.  Click here to read more about Blue House Community Day 2019.

Green House are incredibly grateful to businesses in the local community who donated raffle prizes. Click here to read more about Green House Community Day 2019.

Students had a fantastic time at the Inter House Bake off competition baking cakes for the sale. Click here to read more about Red House Community Day 2019. 

Yellow House Community Day raised £3000 for Mountbatten and KissyPuppy. Over 100 students took part in the sponsored walk, 40 students left school at 6.30am for the 25 mile walk, another 70 students joined them at Carisbrooke Castle to walk 10 miles back to school. Students and staff had a fantastic time, the weather was beautiful and everyone supported each other to get to the end. Click here to read more about Yellow House Community Day 2019.
