The House System

The house system


Director of House: James Owen

At Caludon Castle School we firmly believe that the more a student can engage with school life, the more they thrive in school and reap the benefits a school has to offer. The House system is at the heart of this belief at Caludon Castle; it is the driving force of positivity and praise within the school. Students are encouraged to participate in the House system as much as possible, to enrich the time they spend with us.

The four tenants of the House system are to promote:

Belonging – Providing students and staff with a sense of belonging to their House and the House system, through House assemblies, shared success celebrations and charitable fundraising together.

Celebration – Providing students with opportunities to be celebrated for their efforts and successes through weekly spot prizes, monthly top points prizes, trophies and certificates.

Participation – Providing students with opportunities to work with each other and engage in school life through joint competitions, team sports and charity fundraising.

Competition – Providing students with opportunities to compete against each other in a wide variety of artistic competitions, academic competitions and team/individual sports.


The names of the Houses were nominated and voted on by students in the summer of 2021. Following this vote, the Houses were named after three international sportspeople who are all former students of Caludon Castle School: Marlon Devonish, Olympic gold-medal-winning sprinter; James Maddison, Premier League footballer and member of the England squad; and Rachel Smith, international rhythmic gymnast.

The House system encourages student participation in the wider life of the school, as well as a sense of belonging. Each school faculty runs annual House competitions, rewarding individual students and their Houses for entry to each competition and obviously for success. Each summer we hold a Creativity, Culture and Sport festival. The Houses compete on that day for a prestigious Sports Shield.

There is also an award for the House with the highest number of points across the year.

Each House has adopted a local charity to support. For more information on this, please see our Charity page.
