Sixth Form (Ages 16-18)

At Wellingborough Senior School, the personal welfare of pupils revolves around our House system. Each pupil at the School will have their own personal House tutor and a Housemaster/mistress. Tutors meet their tutees on a daily basis and there are weekly Tutor sessions to discuss topical issues and pupil progress.

There are five boys’ Houses and three girls’. Each has its own dedicated building with locker, meeting and social facilities. Pupils are allocated a House when they enter the Senior School and remain in that House for the entirety of their time at the School.

The House system arrangement is rare in that few co-educational Day School in the UK has a single-sex pastoral structure. Houses contain pupils from a mix of year groups, allowing pupils of all ages to integrate. New pupils are also helped to integrate through support from the House Prefects. A weekly House assembly is held where the whole of the House comes together, and pupils of all ages frequently work together on charity work and regular social functions as part of their House. Competitions are also held in areas such as drama, dance, music, singing, sports, debating and general knowledge between each of the eight houses.

Pupils testify to the success of the House system and the pride in one’s House is palpable.
