House System

We are mindful of the need for additional opportunities to enhance students’ experiences beyond what they encounter in the normal school day.  Our house system provides these opportunities. These are occasions where students can enjoy themselves and thrive in a competitive manner and by doing so develop into happy, resilient young people ready to face the world and able to participate, both within a team context and through leading others.

We are proud of our house system which gives students the chance to earn points and compete for their house and, by doing so, enjoy a sense of belonging. Students can earn house points in a variety of ways:

  • Through personal performance. Meeting academic targets, attending well and making positive contributions to school life will all earn house points
  • Through taking part in our programme of house activities held throughout the year. These include sporting contests of various kinds as well as events such as bake sales and our international day
  • Each year ends with the Chobham Sports Day in which all students are involved. This is a great annual occasion and a real celebration to end the academic year. Points earned on Sports Day are added to those gathered throughout the year in order to identify and crown our annual house champions.

Built into the house system is our need to ensure students understand and value charity. The idea that they are able to offer time and raise money for those less fortunate than themselves. Throughout the school year we ensure a range of charities are supported and each house has its own nominated charity.

Our houses are named in honour of people who we as a school community (both staff and students) are inspired by.

Let us welcome you to the Chobham Houses:

Adichie House

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a Nigerian novelist. She has written a series of short stories and non-fiction pieces including “Purple Hibiscus” and “That thing around your neck”. Chimamanda has also delivered TED talks, the most famous and viewed of which include of “The Danger of a Single Story” in 2009 and “We Should all be Feminists” in 2012.

Sir Roger Bannister was the first athlete to run a mile in under 4 minutes. His passion was to become a doctor and he later became a distinguished neurologist and became a Master at Pembroke College, Oxford before retiring in 1993.

Franklin House

Rosalind Franklin was an English chemist who made key contributions to the understanding of molecular DNA. She only lived to the age of 37. Many talk about the fact that she should have achieved a Nobel Prize in her lifetime for the work she had carried out.

Ramanujan House
