All students in our school are placed into one of four Houses and these form the basis of pastoral guidance and support throughout each student’s time with us.

Our Houses were formed with student voice being the key driver and each House has two tutor groups from each year group, as well as attachment from Sixth Form tutor groups as well.

The Houses are named after famous people from Lichfield – Darwin / Garrick / Johnson / Seward – and each have a Head of House and attached Student Support Officer:

In addition, each House has a student leadership team who play an active role with Head Boys and Girls, Charity Co-Ordinators, Sports Co-Ordinators, Anti-Bullying Reps and Tutor Group Rep.

The House system places a key role in rewards and sanctions as though there is individual acclaim for students, there House points, Behaviour points, attendance rates and so on all contribute to the House total for a range of trophies. This means our spirit is very much driving at ‘all for one and one for all’.

Every student’s House will play an important part in their school life and we believe it is both a responsibility and of real benefit to throw yourself into the House team and spirit. Every student should be there for their House, just like the House should be there for every student.
