Our house system at Cox Green School consists of 7 houses (Bannister, Churchill, Hawking, Nightingale, Parks, Shakespeare, and Winton). Through being attached to a house, we aim to foster a sense of belonging amongst year groups through promoting healthy competition, enhancing student engagement, and encouraging personal and social development.
Our intention of the house system is to create team spirit through friendly competition whilst building on soft skills that students can apply both in school and beyond. Through embedding healthy competition, students can showcase their talents, strive for personal excellence, and work together as a team.
Students can earn points for their houses in numerous ways such as achievements, academic excellence, good behaviour, or acts of kindness. A diverse range of house competitions and volunteering opportunities run over the course of the year which also allow students to positively represent themselves and their house.
The impact of our house system is that students form an identity and develop strong bonds with their housemates, leading to a supportive and cohesive school community. Alongside this, the house system helps promote positive values such as teamwork, respect, sportsmanship, and camaraderie within the school.
We have a variety of student leadership opportunities which allow our students which empowers our students to take initiative, make decisions, and contribute to the school community. Through these opportunities, students can develop their leadership skills whilst and contributing to the development of future leaders within the school community.
