We take great pride in our unique house system, consisting of four houses: Brocket, Fallow, Elk and Sika. All pupils and staff are assigned to a house which plays an integral part of our school community, providing a supportive and nurturing environment for personal and social growth.
Houses are valuable to the school system for several reasons. Firstly, they foster a sense of belonging and community among pupils. Houses create an environment where pupils can form close bonds, support one another, and develop a strong sense of identity within the school. Secondly, houses encourage healthy competition and participation in various extracurricular activities, such as sports and arts in addition to curriculum areas. This not only enhances school spirit but also promotes a well-rounded education. Houses have a positive impact on pupil behaviour, as they provide a sense of accountability and responsibility.
Throughout the year, our house members actively participate in a variety of inter-house activities and competitions. These include sports events, academic challenges and community projects. By engaging in these activities, pupils have the opportunity to showcase their talents, develop leadership skills and develop relationships with peers.
Pupils are rewarded at Chase Terrace Academy not only for demonstrating behaviour and attitudes in line with our school values, but to celebrate achievements across all areas of school life. This ensures that pupils have ample opportunities to be recognised and rewarded for their hard work, progress and positive contributions.
