The House System

MHS is proud to introduce the House System within the school. The system is designed to embody our school values and ethos and aims to be an integral part of our school life.

The House System aims to provide each and every learner with the following:

  • A sense of belonging within the school community
  • Opportunities to develop intellectual, social, physical and physical skills
  • Fun and excitement through competitions
  • A sense of achievement both inside and outside of the classroom
  • Opportunities for leadership

Each House is in competition with one another in order to gain the most number of points for their House.
Pupils can contribute to their house points with activities both inside and outside of the classroom through representing the school in sports, music, drama etc as well as contributing to the life of the school community.
Each area of learning will provide opportunities for pupils to gain house points throughout the year.
Pupils can also gain points for attendance and achievement.

Students have the opportunity to earn points each lesson of the day, which are allocated through Class Charts. However they can earn extra points earned through participation in extracurricular activities and supporting the local community.

The house committee offer a range of competitions and activities throughout academic year, again points are awarded for participation in such events. At the end of the summer term we aim to celebrate the success for the houses, with the overall winner being announced at the House celebrations.

Pupils are assigned to Dauntless House upon entering Year 7. Whilst in Year 7. Pupils complete a Quest Of Achievement, which encompasses activities both inside and outside of the classroom. Upon completing the quest, pupils will graduate Dauntless and be assigned to their new house to which they will belong for their remaining time at MHS. Siblings will be assigned to the same Houses where possible. Each member of staff is also assigned to a House. Each House has designated House Captains who will act as Representatives for all learners throughout the year, helping organise events and competitions as well as represent their house at meetings.
