The main aim of the House System is to provide competitions in a wide variety of fields including sporting, cultural and academic activities, thereby encouraging the attributes of teamwork and social responsibility. Trophies will be awarded to winning Houses in each competition and individual awards will be made to students who excel in attainment, progress and citizenship.
There are four Houses in the school, Brandon, Conrad, Gordon and Wallace. The Houses are represented by blue, green, red and yellow respectively. These colours can be seen around the school, on school ties, on Gym kit and in the School Hall where there are four colour-themed paintings which were designed and painted by our Art students.
These names were chosen because they belong to famous people with close connections to the Thurrock District.
