Just as Greta Thunberg showed that you're never too young to make a difference, Captain Tom showed that you're never too old either. He will live on as an example to us all.

Difficult to see but this is the moment yesterday afternoon that 8 Abbey and 8 Tudor took it upon themselves to take the knee for Black Lives Matter at the start of their House Football Final. We are very proud of them. https://t.co/vo1BMJEo1J

Reminder: INSET Day - Friday 26 November 2020 - school closed for all students.

The House System

When you start at Glyn School you will be put into one of eight Houses:

Abbey, Bourne, Carew, Derby, Merton, Oaks, St Benet, Tudor.

The Houses are made up of one Form group from Years 7 to 13.

The sense of community in each House is very important and you will soon get to know the other students in your Tutor group very well over the first few months, as well as the older students in your House who will be able to help and support you as you settle in.  Each House has a House Captain, Community Captain and Sports Captain in Year 11 and Senior Prefects in the Sixth Form.

House Competitions

Throughout the year, there are many House competitions such as Spelling Bee, House Debating, House Music as well as many Sporting events, so there is literally something for you all to get involved in even if you’re not sporty. The students in the roles as House/Sports Captain and Senior Prefects have gained these positions by being actively involved in their House from day one.

House Reward System

We award Achievement points to reward students’ effort and behaviour, both inside and outside of the classroom.  Achievement points go towards a grand total for your House. At the end of the academic year in July, the House with the most points wins the coveted Victor Ludorum Trophy.

The Victor Ludorum Trophy

Each year, the Houses compete against each other for the Victor Ludorum Trophy. The winner of this prestigious prize is the House which scores the most points from the House Competitions and achievement points combined. The current holders are Bourne House, but this year it’s already very tight at the top. Will you be entering the Champion House?
