House System

The house system plays a main role in life at Chancellor's and encourages staff and student participation in extra-curricular events and competitions. The houses are named after historical Lord Chancellors. The chosen houses were: Arundel, Becket, Hailsham, More, Somers and Wolsey and more recently Yorke. 

The students, with the help of the art department, then designed the house symbols using the family coat of arms from each of the 6 Lord Chancellors and we held a student wide competition to design the Yorke symbol. Each form group belongs to a house and each student gains house points, which contribute to their house total. The updated running totals are published every month in the newsletter and the house with the most points at the end of the academic year wins the house cup.

The Houses are headed by Teacher Heads of House, Year 13 Sixth Form Prefects and Year 12 Assistant Heads of House, who, working with their year 7 to 11 House Form Representatives, keep all students informed of house events and support their houses in all areas of these competitions.

Assemblies are run by these Heads of Houses to help the House keep up to date with competitions and their points total. The House system is also used as a student voice vehicle.
