The House System at Carr Manor Community School is one of many aspects we offer that makes us different.
Named after local sporting heroes, (Jane) Tomlinson, (Jason) Robinson, (Billy) Bremner and (Fred) Trueman, all pupils are members of a House and each House has a specific colour that pupils wear as part of their uniform.
Our younger children have polo shirts in their House colour and, from Year 7 to Year 11, pupils have coloured ties (Green for Tomlinson, Purple for Robinson, Blue for Bremner and Yellow for Trueman), so wherever they are in school, at whatever age, pupils know and recognise that they are part of a team.
E-Praise points are given as rewards to pupils in coaching sessions and during lessons, for representing the school and attending revision classes or clubs. These points are collected and listed in the Coaching Chronicle each week where individual pupil points are collated and added to the overall House point system.
All Houses choose a charity every year and points are allocated for fundraising activities that will benefit the important work they do. There are also competitions between Houses, ranging across sporting events, cooking, talent shows, and individual subject contests spanning all years.
At the end of the year the Annual House Trophy is presented to the House with the most points, as an added incentive for good behaviour and any efforts to develop character for learning in school.
