The House System

When you arrive at Ribblesdale you will be put into one of five houses depending on which form you are in.

The houses are:

Mitton7A7B
Edisford7C7D
Downham7E7F
Chatburn7G7H
Waddington7J7K

You will wear the coloured tie of your house. For example if you are in 7A, you are in Mitton and therefore wear a red tie.

The sense of community in each House is very important and you will soon get to know the other pupils in your form group very well over the first few months, as well as the older pupils in your House who will be able to help and support you as you settle in.

If you do good work in school your teachers will award you with House Points, these will be added together to form a weekly total for your House.

There are whole year group competitions such as a "cheerathon" (cheering leading competition), house notice board and the famous "Big Quiz."

You will receive certificates for collecting 50, 100 and 150 house points and you will also go into a prize draw to win a voucher.

Excellent attendance is praised highly at Ribblesdale; you will receive certificates and go into a prize draw to win a voucher.

The winning house receive the house cup at the end of the year!
