Promoting a sense of community

The school House System has long been a valued British tradition where a sense of pride and belonging is fostered amongst staff and students.

At Brakenhale we are very proud of our own history and traditions that have helped shape the success we are today. The House System has taken on many transformations throughout the years. The last 5 years we have build a system that forms the very heart and spirit of #teambrakenhale. Our Houses are a true representation of every member that forms part of our community. It is a system that has been designed by our own students. Every detail of each House has been carefully selected to reflect the beautiful area and community we live in.

Our four Houses are:

Rewards & House Points

As a school it is important for us to recognise and reward our students for the hard work and efforts they put in day after day. We do this through issuing our students with House Points.

Individual House Points feed into the overall House Competition and our students contributions are invaluable in deciding which House finishes on top at the end of every year. This is an exciting part of school life and it can become quite competitive amongst students, as well as staff! This competition forms parts of our overall drive to instil a sense of hard work, competitiveness and team spirit within our community.

Students can look forward to a range of activities, House Competitions and ‘Fun Friday’ Challenges that all contribute to House Points.

Golden Tickets

Launched in January 2022, our ‘Golden Tickets’ ensure that students are rewarded and praised every day.

In every lesson, every teacher selects one student to be the recipient of the ‘golden ticket’. This student is given a ‘ticket’, dated and signed by the teacher, to take home and show parents/carers with pride. The ‘ticket’ is worth five house points.

Furthermore, students with zero behaviour points and excellent attendance are rewarded every half term, as a minimum.  The rewards so far include, for example, ‘pizza party’, vouchers and ‘tea and cake with the Headteacher’, to name a few. Further rewards and praise will be available and shared with students as these develop. We are working hard for our school community to be one in which everyone strives to do their very best, is acknowledged for it and rewarded accordingly.
