House System

Vertical tutoring runs alongside a House system here at Holgate. Each House consists of 10 tutor group, each tutor group contains a mixture of students from each year group, and there are approximately 25 students in each tutor group 5 from each year 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11.
We have 4 houses at Holgate they are Clumber, Rufford, Sherwood and Thoresby. Students are placed in the same house as their brothers and sisters but not in the same form group, with all family members being in the same house this means that parents will only have to deal with one house team for all of their children at Holgate.
Each house team is made up of House Leader, House Learning Mentor, 10 Form Tutors and Co-form Tutors. Each tutor group has a Form Captain and a Form vice Captain as well as a number of students trained to be mentors for younger students. 
Assemblies take place with each House once a week and numerous activities take place in the other 4 tutor periods these include maths problems to solve, a cross curricular literacy tasks to complete each term and a weekly quiz. Each house also takes part in regular competitions and the overall winner for the Year wins the House cup. 
You can find out more about each house by clicking on the house boxes on the right. To see photos of the staff involved with the House Teams please click on the School Staff button.
