All our students, from Years 7 to 13, governors and staff, are members of one of our two new houses: Apollo and Poseidon. These names were chosen, from many student suggestions in the ‘Name The House’ competition, as they reflect our unique learning communities in Cyprus.
The house structure aims to further promote achievement as well as contribute to the development of our students. We will acknowledge and reward the successes of our students in the form of house points (using the ePraise system). The house system will provide great opportunities for all students to receive these house points whether in lessons, in a house event, by demonstrating the schools Core Values or other achievements throughout school. The students will earn these points for their house as well as themselves and they can be spent in the ePraise shop.
Integral to the wider experiences open to our students is the range of opportunities they are given to achieve and develop as a whole person. The newly introduced house structure helps every one of our students to achieve this. The house system offers opportunities for students to both participate and lead on the sports field, on the stage, as an artist, as a chef or as a designer to name but a few.
Each house has a Head of House and House Captains within each tutor group.
The house system is a very welcome addition to our already fantastic school and we look forward to seeing it go from strength to strength as both houses compete for The House Cup.

Each student is given a login and password so that they can monitor how many house/reward points they have been awarded, in what subjects, and for demonstrating which of the schools Core Value. These points can be used in the rewards shop to purchase items including stationary, cinema tickets and a computer tablet. Students are also presented with milestones certificates when they achieve a certain amount of reward/house points.
