The Maidstone Grammar School for Girls House System

Our school has a very well established House system going back many decades.  Every student is a member of either Britons, Danes, Normans, Romans, Saxons or Vikings.  During the course of the year there are a wide range of House competitions and our Sports Day is also a House based competition.  House Arts is the ‘jewel in the crown’ of House events and is an annual competition rotating between Music, Drama and Dance.  In the space of one term, sixth form House leaders work tirelessly with some of the members from their Houses to produce performances of outstanding quality.  This year it was the turn of Dance with the theme of ‘Global Citizens’ and Saxons won the House Arts Cup for 2016.

All of the House competitions lead to the awarding of House points.  House points are also awarded to students for a variety of other reasons as well such as making sustained progress in a subject, producing work of a  very high standard or helping with a particular school event or activity.  House points are collated and each year the House with the most points wins the House League Cup.
