House System


The House System at The King’s Academy is designed to support the Ethos and the Virtues of the Academy.  It provides a sociable, whist competitive, environment in which students work together towards a common goal.

All students are allocated to one of four Houses (Greeks, Hebrews, Medes or Romans) according to their tutor group. Students can participate in House events that earn points towards the award of the House Cup, a prestigious, sought-after piece of silverware!  All House events are designed to be open to all students irrespective of ability.  There is a mix of sporting, performance and other activities.  Some House competitions involve students being creative, some encourage teamwork and others focus on the individual. The aim of the House competition is to inspire participation and for students to have fun!

House competitions include the following events throughout the year:

Cross Country Photography Netball Sports Day
Table Tennis Performing Arts Art Merits
Christmas Cracker Superchef Maths Challenge Attendance
Engineering Chess Cricket/Rounders Poetry


The house that accrues the most points in a year wins the House Cup.  Historic House Cup winners are listed below:
