House System

 
 

An overview of the House System:

Every student who attends Woking High School is a member of a ‘house’. The houses are made up of all students from Year 7 through to Year 11. Each student is given a badge when they join the school in Year 7 which shows the house that they will represent for their time at the school.

There are 4 houses at Woking High School named after famous personalities from the world of Science and Technology:
The houses of Woking High School
Brunel
Curie
Faraday
Stephenson

House Captains

At the beginning of the academic year meetings are held to elect House Captains. One boy and one girl from Year 11 are elected from each house. The job of the house captains is to take responsibility for the leadership and organisation of their house throughout the forthcoming academic year.

House Competitions

The following are some of the house competitions that take place throughout the year; all competitions give the students the opportunity to win house points. House points are added together and the house with the most points at the end of the year will win the overall house competition.

  • Dance Off
  • Woking High’s Got Talent
  • Photography Competition
  • Fun Run
  • Candy Cane Competition
  • Maths Challenge
  • Film Festival
  • Inter House Cross Country
  • Easter Eggstravaganza
  • Interhouse Football (Girls and Boys)
  • Inter House Baketball (Girls and Boys)
  • Masterchef/Bake Off
  • Sports Day

This blend ensures that everyone has the opportunity to represent their house in something that they enjoy or are good at. All students have further opportunities to earn housepoints for their house. Housepoints are awarded for things such as good work, contribution to lessons and participation in house competitions. Students can also gain valuable housepoints every week for merely doing the right thing. Tutors award housepoints each week for perfect attendance, punctuality, uniform and equipment. Students (and staff!) quickly form an allegiance to their house and a sense of fun and friendly competition pervades all the house events!
