The House System is often described by students as ‘the best thing about St Wilfrid’s’.
When a student (or staff member!) joins the Academy, they are placed into one of five houses: Exeter, Lincoln, Oxford, Ripon or Truro. Throughout the academic year, the houses compete in a variety of activities and sporting events.
Big events such as the Swimming Gala, House Pantomimes and Sports Day, are spaced out well with smaller week-to week-events for all years, including Pictionary, Curling, Bench Ball, Taboo, Outburst and Hula-Hooping to name just a few!
At the end of the year, the House with the most points from all activities is crowned champion!
This dose of healthy competition brings a great balance to the academic side of school life. We see great bonds of friendship created not only amongst the students in different year groups, but also between staff members.
