The House System

Every member of the SRA community, students and staff, as well as being in a tutor group and a year group, belongs to a house. The houses, Austen, Bronte, Christie, Dahl, Hardy, King and Wordsworth reflect our English specialism.

As House members, all students have a wide range of opportunities to work together and 'compete' against other students, the other Houses and even against themselves earning House points in the process.

Austen House

484px jane austen coloured version

Jane Austen was born on December 16, 1775, in Steventon, Hampshire, England. While not widely known in her own time, Austen's comic novels of love among the landed gentry gained popularity after 1869, and her reputation skyrocketed in the 20th century. Her novels, including Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility, are considered literary classics, bridging the gap between romance and realism.

Bronte House

Emily Brontë by Patrick Branwell Brontë restored

Born in Thornton, Yorkshire, England, on July 30, 1818, Emily Jane Brontë lived a quiet life in Yorkshire with her clergyman father; brother, Branwell Brontë; and two sisters, Charlotte and Anne. The sisters enjoyed writing poetry and novels, which they published under pseudonyms. As "Ellis Bell," Emily wrote Wuthering Heights (1847)—her only published novel—which garnered wide critical and commercial acclaim. Emily Brontë died in Haworth, Yorkshire, England, on December 19, 1848—the same year that her brother, Branwell, passed away.

Christie House

Christie

Born on September 15, 1890, in Torquay, England, Agatha Christie published her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, in 1920, and went on to become one of the most famous writers in history, with mysteries like Murder at the Vicarage, Partners in Crime and Sad Cypress. She sold billions of copies of her work, and was also a noted playwright and romance author. She died on January 12, 1976. 

Dahl House

                                                              Roald dahl 1982

Roald Dahl was born on September 13, 1916, in Llandaff, South Wales. In 1953, he published the best-selling story collection Someone Like You and married actress Patricia Neil. He published the popular book James and the Giant Peach in 1961. In 1964, he released another highly successful work, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which was later adapted for two films. Over his decades-long writing career, Dahl wrote 19 children's books. He died on November 23, 1990, in Oxford, England.

Hardy House

                                                              Hardy

Thomas Hardy was born in Dorset, England in 1840. As a novelist he is best known for his work set in the semi-fictionalised county of Wessex including, Tess of the d'Urbervilles and Jude the Obscure. He was also an accomplished poet. Hardy died in 1928. His ashes are in the Poets' Corner of Westminster Abbey and remarkably his heart is buried in Stinsford with his first wife.

King House

Martinlutherking

He was born on January 15, 1929, in Atlanta, Georgia. King, both a Baptist minister and civil-rights activist, had a seismic impact on race relations in the United States, beginning in the mid-1950s. Among many efforts, King headed the SCLC. Through his activism, he played a pivotal role in ending the legal segregation of African-American citizens in the South and other areas of the nation, as well as the creation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. King received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, among several other honours. King was assassinated in April 1968, and continues to be remembered as one of the most lauded African-American leaders in history, often referenced by his 1963 speech, "I Have a Dream."

Wordsworth House

                                                             430px william wordsworth

Born in England in 1770, poet William Wordsworth worked with Samuel Taylor Coleridge on Lyrical Ballads (1798). The collection, which contained Wordsworth's "Tintern Abbey," introduced Romanticism to English poetry. Wordsworth also showed his affinity for nature with the famous poem "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud." He became England's poet laureate in 1843, a role he held until his death in 1850.

House competitions

Throughout the year students have many chances to work with members of their form and House, taking part in competitions and events in their quest to earn valuable house points. Some of these take place as part of lessons, some run during lunchtimes and after school and offer extra opportunity to get involved in the life of SRA.

At the start of every school year we kick start the house competition whereby the whole school day is collapsed so that all students can compete in a wide range of sporting events. We run a total of 26 events throughout the year including Poetry, Eggheads, Stop Motion, Debating, G.B.B.O and of course, plenty of sports events including sports day. All of these and other events build towards the awarding of the House Cup during a hugely emotional climax to our final school “House” assembly.

Every year we also gather food donations for one of our local food banks to support those families within our community who are less fortunate. Each house will also select a local or national charity to fundraise for over the year. Last year we raised over £12,500 towards our elected charities. Elected student Form Captains and House Captains help to organise, promote and these run events. Through regular meetings and assemblies they work with both teachers and other students to ensure that the spirit of all the houses is a prominent feature of school life. For example: “I’m a teacher get me out of here”
