All students in years 7-10 will be placed into one of four houses, each one representing a famous North-East landmark: Angel, Baltic, Sage and Tyne. Events and activities will be arranged throughout the year and regular house assemblies will be held, allowing each house to gather as a group and review their progress throughout the year.
Each house will compete to see who can gain the most merits throughout the year and the winning house will be rewarded on a termly basis. Students can collect merits throughout the year for behaviour, effort and participation in extracurricular activities.
Year 11 students will take part in a separate rewards system, whereby they can gain merits which will build towards their end of year celebrations.
