Our house system comprises four distinct Houses:
Attenborough, Turing, Pankhurst, and Ali.
Each member of the RFSS community, including students and staff, is assigned to one of these Houses upon joining the school. The House system serves as a platform for fostering teamwork, promoting our RFSS values, and instilling a strong sense of community.
Our house values ensure all students are fully enriched
Throughout the academic year, Heads of House organise a range of exciting events, competitions, and challenges in which all houses participate. These events include academic quizzes, sports tournaments, creative performances, charity initiatives, and more. By engaging in these activities, both students and staff have the opportunity to showcase their talents, learn new skills, and build lasting friendships across different age groups and departments.
Participating in events not only offers an avenue for personal development but also contributes to the overall success of each house. Every event earns house points, which are accumulated throughout the year. These points are tallied to determine the house champion at the end of the academic year.
In September 2022, students and staff collaborated to compile a list of House names. This compilation comprised individuals who embody the core values of RFSS and have made notable contributions to our society. Through a voting process, students and staff selected those individuals they believed best exemplified the values of RFSS. As a result of this collective effort, our four Houses were established, each representing the embodiment of RFSS values.
Every House has a designated charity that was selected through a voting process by House members. This chosen charity holds a prominent role during our annual charity day and remains a central focus for various fundraising events throughout the year.
In 2023, Pankhurst emerged as the victor of our inaugural House trophy. This year, Turing, Ali, and Attenborough Houses are all eager and determined to claim the House trophy for themselves.
