Introduction to the House System

 
In September 2005 Selby High School introduced a new pastoral house system of four Houses to replace the Year Group system. Each of these houses contains a number of mixed age Form Groups, containing students from Y7-11.

 

The benefits of the house system are as follows:

  • healthy & meaningful competition; the four houses compete for a trophy, The Benedict Shield, on an annual basis with all aspects of school life counting towards its award e.g. academic performance, attendance, punctuality, behaviour, merits, the performing and visual arts, community and sport
  • better opportunity for the older students to act as mentors and role models
  • easy for tutors to monitor targets
  • improve accountability and quality assurance
  • easier communication for parents / carers

The Houses

House names have been selected from famous Yorkshire persons related to the arts.

Each House annually has nominated one boy and one girl House Captain and one boy and one girl Vice Captain.

Benedict Shield

Each term all house points are aggregated and the top scoring house wins the Buttery Shield which is presented at the end of Term assembly. At the end of the summer term points from the termly Buttery Shield are added together and the winning house receives the Benedict Shield at the end of year assembly.

House Points are gained from vivo points, 100% attendance, taking part in school productions, playing sport for the school, good behaviour and going the extra mile. Points are deducted for being late to school, incorrect uniform, using mobile phones in school and poor behaviour.
