The House System
Aylesford School - Sports College operates a House system. The houses are all named after historical pioneers and were voted for by students, staff, parents and governors.
Each house has a Head of House who is the figurehead for that House and works with the students and mentors to ensure that all students are ready, respectful and safe.
Students are in a vertical mentor group within their house and are with students from other year groups in their mentor group. This creates a genuine family community within the school. They are allocated a mentor who will see them for 35 minutes a day. During mentor time students will attend assemblies, complete mentor group challenges and take part actively in reading sessions.
Competition is a big part of the house system and students compete in a range of activities and challenges throughout the year as well as competing in leagues for attendance, punctuality and rewards.
Assemblies are a regular feature of the mentor time programme and students attend either a House assembly or Year assembly at least once a week. Assemblies are delivered by a range of different staff as well as involving students. Assemblies cover a range of different topics and issues and the full programme can be viewed.
