The House System is designed to incorporate the character values and ethos of the school and aims to be an integral part of our school community. Here at King James Academy, every pupil and staff member is assigned a house. By being a member of the house family, students and staff are encouraged to show team spirit as all of the houses thrive on the ethos of “it’s the taking part that counts”.
There are four Houses across the school, incorporating students from Year 5 right through to Year 11: Dragon, Griffin, Pegasus and Phoenix. There are many house events throughout the year from all areas of school life. This blend ensures that everyone has the opportunity to represent their house in something that they enjoy or are good at. Staff lead by example and take part in exactly the same events as the students. These competitions regularly attract crowds of supporters cheering for their house.
