The House System aims to facilitate more mixing between the different year groups, increase community spirit, peer mentoring, boost the existing rewards system, encourage more students to get involved in competitions, and develop leadership opportunities for students in KS3 and KS4.
Every student who attends Belmont Community School is assigned to a house. There are 4 houses overseen by two Heads of House. Each house is led by 8 student representatives, a male and female House Captain from year 10, a male and female Vice Captain from year 9 and house leaders from year 7 and 8. Students are allocated to a house and remain in it until they leave Belmont Community School. All staff members are also assigned to a house.
