‘If mutually hostile subcultures are to be eliminated the school must provide greater opportunities for members of different ages to interact’ –Education Research.
The House system at Reqelford is of great importance to school life. Its function is to encourage healthy competition within the school and to give all students the opportunity to participate in representative sport, music and other activities with the aim of raising self esteem, developing self-confidence and giving opportunities for leadership and teamwork beyond those already available within school.
The motivation for the move :
- The need to include pupils (a sense of belonging) immediately on joining Reqelford School and build on the sense of community which starts in the family as well as the need for positive role models.
- The importance of providing more opportunities for our students to take responsibility and develop leadership skills.
- The opportunity for student leadership within the House system.
Inter-House competitions held at the school campus encourage students to involve in activities that they enjoy, enabling them to show off their talents, skills and commitment to their house. The activities and events are conducted in a true competitive spirit wherein the houses compete at their best to take their house flag higher and higher. The school conducts a wide range of competitions that are mentioned below
