House System

In 2017, a House System was introduced at Gulf British Academy. We believe it is an effective way to bring together pupils from different age groups, improve pupil behaviour and minimise bullying. We also believe it promotes teamwork and a community spirit through healthy competition, assigned responsibility and achievement recognition.

The House System

After consultation with staff and pupils, five Royal Houses (and colours) were chosen to represent each school House.

House System - Gulf British Academy

Primary pupils are members of school-wide teams, promoting inclusion and interaction across the years. Each House is represented by a House Captain. House Captains are chosen by Year 6 teachers for their excellent behaviour and effort in school.

Allocation of pupils to Houses

  • Whenever possible, siblings are allocated to the same House.
  • Once allocated, pupils may not – under any circumstances – move to a different House.
  • Within the Primary Department, the allocation of new students to Houses ensures, as far as possible, equal House representation in each year group.

House System activities

Every year, Houses take part in competitions within school. These range from sports days to reading competitions. This is a fun way to promote healthy competition between peers and to encourage pupils to invest in school life.

Pupils who take part in extracurricular and nonacademic activities may also be awarded House points for their achievements. This can be a great way for diffident or reluctant pupils to contribute.
