We have a thriving house system at King James’s that:
When students arrive at the school they join one of four houses:
Each form group belongs to a particular house, as indicated by its name
(e.g. 7S JCP is a Swaledale form). To strengthen house identity and provide an opportunity for younger and older students from the same house to mix, lockers are located in colour-coded house areas.
The school has a long and proud tradition of house competition - not just in sporting endeavour, but also in drama, dance and music.
House events in 2017/18 included:
Each house has a House Leader and House Captains who help to organise teams and support students. The winning house for each event has its house colour ribbons attached to a trophy in a cabinet at the front of school. These points are added up throughout the year and the overall winning house is awarded a trophy at the end of year assembly.
