House System

Our House system was created to encourage team work, cohesion and leadership across the year groups and to reward students who engage in all aspects of school life. Our core values for the House System are:


Cohesion, Community, Challenge, Charity, Competition, Celebration

There are four houses of Hatton; Burghley, Drake, Raleigh and Walsingham. These names were selected as they link to Sir Christopher Hatton and his history. 

The Houses are led by a Head of House, with every member of the staff being assigned to one of the fours Houses. Staff, together with students of the same house, take part in activities throughout the year. To encourage identity, ownership and team work across the school, students in key stages 3 and 4 wear ties in their house colour.

Competitions and Results

During the school year, the Heads or House and captains run various events and competitions that the students and staff compete in. We believe this teaches the students about healthy competition as well as the correct way to win and lose. It also reinforces team work, rules and social skills and widens students’ engagement in school life.
