As part of the house system pupils are also placed in Vertical Mentor Groups which meet on Monday to Thursday between 2.45 pm and 3.15 pm and Friday between 1.15 pm to 1.30 pm. Each Vertical Mentor Group is allocated to a house. Each house also has a house council which represents the pupil voice for their house.
The house system promotes pupil well-being by offering them support from their Head of House and from their Vertical and Peer house mentors. Heads of House provide house activities and competitions to enhance pupils' sense of belonging and self-esteem. Heads of House meet regularly, as a team, with the Assistant Headteacher for Well-being (Mrs Ann Andrews) to discuss fund raising ideas, inter-house competitions and other well-being issues.
