House Competitions

 

House System Overview

Christ’s students are assigned to four houses: Attenborough, Dickens, Elizabeth and Turing. The four houses are named after notable Great Britons who are connected with Richmond. Throughout the year the Houses compete for the Swinburne Trophy which is awarded to the House that achieves the most House academic points. House points are awarded by each department. They are awarded to students for excellence in the classroom and homework. Staff aim to award 2-3 House points per lesson. House points are logged on line by the staff. Heads of Year and Tutors  monitor these points and hold reward and celebration assemblies. Houses compete for the Greenwood Shield in sports, and we have Winter and Summer sports days which are run in Autumn and Summer terms.

Aims:

  1. To provide each student with the opportunity to participate in a House Competition across all departments and on a whole school level.

  2. To help students develop personal qualities of leadership, courage, integrity, resilience and determination

  3. To enable students to make a positive contribution to their community and to society as a whole

The attached document provides details of all the department House competitions for the academic year 2021.22. Points are awarded for participation and winning a House Competition.
