House system

The Boswells House System embeds a sense of community, friendship and healthy competition amongst both students and staff.  A strong house identity empowers our students to participate and thrive in all aspects of school life, both in and out of the classroom.

The qualities instilled by belonging to a house family ensure that Boswells' students go on to value and appreciate making positive contributions to our wider society.

Here at the Boswells we have 6 Houses which are represented by British citizens who have excelled in an area of our Boswells Learning Bridge which includes integrity, emotional intelligence, grit, resourcefulness, self-discipline and bravery. 

Our 6 Heads of House are:

Ms Celine Dezert- Attenborough House (Orange)

Mr Jack Farrington – Hawking House (Pink)

Mrs Kerry Nally- Nightingale House (Yellow)

Ms Rebecca Nobes – Cornwell House (Green)

Ms Shannon Smyth- Bronte House (Blue)

Ms Suzanne Lee- Rowling House (Red)

House Captains

We have a team of Senior and House Captains across Year 12-7 who work together to support, organise and promote the House System that they represent. Students are given the opportunity to apply for these positions yearly and are decided based on their letter of application and an interview.

A student’s House can be identified by the badge that they are wearing. All students received this badge in their first House assembly and must have this displayed on their blazer. New badges can be located in the pastoral office.

House Events

Here is an example of some of the confirmed events for this academic year. More information on these events can be accessed through Heads of House, the pastoral weekly PowerPoint and on our social media sites Twitter and Instagram at @BoswellsHouses. We also have a weekly feature on the Facebook main page. Here you will also find weekly updates on our House League points and other House related news.

House points

Students can receive House points by receiving achievement points. Each point will equate to 1 house point and over the course of the week each House will receive a total between 10-60 points depending on how many achievement points their House has earned over the week.

Additional House points can be achieved by attending and winning House competitions.
