Each Coaching group includes students and a member of staff from the same House. This ensures a community feel during Coaching and allows Coaching groups to take part in House challenges together.
The House system at Wetherby High Community School is an important part of who we are and an example of what makes us different.
Named after local sporting heroes, (Jason) Robinson, (Jane) Tomlinson, (Fred) Trueman and (Billy) Bremner, each House has a specific colour that students wear as a tie. This means that wherever students are in school, they know and recognise that they are part of a team.
All Houses choose an annual charity and fundraising activities take place that will benefit the important work they do. The House system also encourages healthy competition across school. Competitions range from sporting events to cooking, talent shows and individual subject contests. Students earn House points for taking part in these and for representing our school at external events and demonstrating positive character within lessons.
These House Points contribute to the end of year awards, where the annual House trophy is presented to the House with the most House Points.
