The House system is an integral aspect of life at Adeyfield School. Students are allocated to a house when they enter the school

  • Students will remain in their House throughout their time at Adeyfield School; this will provide continuity and promote a sense of belonging.
  • Siblings will be in the same house.
  • Form groups will be a mix of Houses.

The school has 5 houses:

  • Aldbury
  • Batchwood
  • Leavesden
  • Shenley
  • Westbrook

The House system will support and enrich the lives of students whilst they are at school and any house activities that are participated in will be rewarded. House activities will take place throughout the year and students will have involvement in participation and the organisation of these events. House Captains will liaise with staff regarding the organisation of House Competitions working together to make these events a success.

To move the House system forward it will sit within the Student and Key Stage Forums. The aim of the Student Forum is to address whole school issues. Student Forum will be made up of the following from the student body:

  • Year 13 Senior Students
  • Year 12 House Captains
  • Year 11 Deputy House Captains
  • Year 7 – 10 House Representatives

The Year group representatives will serve on the Key Stage Forum, which will be chaired by the Deputy Head of Key Stage. The aim of this platform is to address specific issues related to the Key Stage. Representatives will then rotate onto the Student Forum each half term. House representatives will be actively encouraged to bring; ideas, suggestions and feedback from their house members to both Key Stage and Student Forums.

Feedback to students will be through half termly Year Group Assemblies which will be led by House Captains. House Assemblies will also run once a half term by a member of the Senior Leadership Team and supported by the House Captains.

Student Forum will be facilitated by Miss Walker. Responsibility of the House System is facilitated by Mrs Bristow as Co-Curricular Co-Ordinator.
