Every member of the school belongs to one of the four Houses which are named after four Shropshire Castles. The colour of the school emblem on students’ sweatshirts represents the House colour.

For a number of years our House system has incorporated vertical tutoring, where tutor groups comprise of students from each year group. Vertical tutoring can support postitive relationships between students at different stages of their school journey and aims to foster a spirit of community. In preparing to re-open the school in September 2020, we have reverted back to year group tutor groups in order to keep the students in bubbles. Our tutors all have experience in offering pastoral support to the members of their grouup and are the first port of call for any concerns. We will review our tutoring system later this year, consulting with students and staff on their experiences.

As part of our commitment to the local and wider community we support four House charities. During the school year each House runs charity events to raise money for their particular charity.


House Competitions

A spirit of healthy competition is central to the House system. Students compete in a series of House competitions and challenges during the year. Points are awarded for participation and success in these events and are added to the tally of individual points awarded for excellent work or helpful behaviour. The winning House overall last year was Whittington. This year, we are delighted to have members of our alumni and local business community involved in launching, judging and awarding prizes for our House competitions.  This is a well loved competitive element to school life, and one that we encourage all of our school community to contribute towards. A key focus is to develop employability skills, in particular creativity and team work, and for the whole school to get involved in a shared goal. We hope everyone enjoys the programme ahead:

year 11 prom pass

Year 11
In Year 11, students are rewarded for their commitment towards independent research and their willingness to attend support/revision sessions. Students have loyalty cards and each completed card puts them into a raffle to win a voucher every half term. We are committed to ensuring that our students are rewarded for their personal commitment. Students are also working towards achieving their Prom Pass, a set of targets that they must meet to be invited to the legendary Belvidere School Prom.

 

Prefects
Our new team of prefects for 2020-21 has now been appointed and is doing a great job setting a positive example to younger members of the school.
The students took part in a rigorous process to become prefects. They completed a written application, which was considered alongside their behaviour and attendance record, and were then interviewed for the post by their Head of House. It is always inspiring to have so many of our very busy, older students genuinely wanting to give up some of their precious time to help younger students and to act as ambassadors for the school. Belvidere Prefects help out at key events such as Open Evening and are also given duties to help ensure that the school day runs smoothly. These duties involve helping to supervise year 7 and 8 students in their zone; advising younger students at the ‘drop-in’ session in Room 7 as well as befriending and mentoring vulnerable students in the Personalised Learning Centre.
We wish the team well in their new roles!
