The House system at Beths was set up to enhance the sense of community within the school.
It encourages participation in sporting and cultural activities, and promotes leadership and personal development. The House System provides a framework for participation in a variety of in-school activities, competitions and events across the co-curricular programme.
Students are assigned to one of six Houses when they begin school and stay in the same House until they leave. Each house is named after an area of Bexley, enhancing the schools sense of community within the local area.
Students can earn points for their House by participating in various sporting and cultural competitions throughout the year. These include the ever-popular MFL Bake off event, International dress Up day, House Music Competition, and sporting events such as Cross Country, Sports Day and Fifa competitions .
In the classroom environment and around the school, students can gain house points for displaying positive behaviour, including completing work well, going out of their way to help others and showing initiative.
A special Certificate of Commendation is awarded to students throughout the year, as appropriate to the number of commendations received: 25 for Bronze, 50 for Silver, 75 for Gold, 100 Double Gold, 125 Treble Gold and finally 150 for Four-Gold. Additionally, at the end of the academic year, the House whose students have accumulated the greatest number of points is awarded the House Cup.
