Students are divided into one of five Salesian Houses when they join the school. Each house is named after a Salesian Saint and an important part of the school calendar is celebrating the Feast Days of such Saints.
The House System forms an integral part of day to day life in the school including the collection of House points and regular inter-House competitions and activities. Every year the overall winning House is crowned Champion and the students in this House are rewarded with a celebration trip.
House points are the way in which Salesian School recognises achievement in all aspect of school life. Students can be awarded house points:
- for academic performance and effort
- for extra-curricular activities
- for good deeds, being helpful and fundraising
- or at the discretion of their Tutor, Teacher, Head of Year or Head of House
House Points are celebrated in assemblies by Heads of House and Heads of Year, by a rewards trip in the summer term for individuals with the most House points and the winning House is named at Sports Day in the summer term with a House Rewards Trip out the following term.
