The House System incorporates Vertical Tutoring with tutor groups comprising of 5 students from each year group. This does not affect the teaching groups that your son/daughter learn in, but enhance the collaborative care and guidance that we give our school community. It is about breaking down barriers and improving the atmosphere and feel within our school community.
This system benefits the students and the school in the following ways:

  • Creates a cohesive and friendlier school community where students know and work with students from other years ("like a family").
  • Bullying is reduced, as older students see younger ones as members of their tutor group with whom they associate on a daily basis
  • Easily accessible positive role models for younger students.
  • Students support one another and understand the stages that they will go through as they move through the school. This has the potential to increase aspiration and motivation.
  • Increased opportunities for students to develop their social skills through working with students of different ages.
  • Tutors can attend to small numbers of students at once, at critical times for them, e.g... New intake, option choices.
  • Corporate identity of each house – sense of belonging

A strong sense of competition is embedded into the House System. At the end of each year, the House Points are calculated and the winning House receives a reward. A House trophy is the crown that the four Houses will battle to possess at the end of each year.

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.



Our new team of prefects for 2018-19 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. 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 other students at the ‘drop-in’ session and mentoring vulnerable students in the Personalised Learning Centre.
We wish the team well in their new roles!
