At TPAT Sixth Form staff and students take the sense of community further than just tutor groups and year groups. Every person within the school is allocated to one of our four Houses: Berners Lee, Holmes, Moore, and Pascal. The house leaders are Mr Davies (Berners-Lee), Mr Embling (Holmes), Miss Marriott (Moore) and Miss Wozencraft (Pascal) who work together to create more than just learning in the classroom.
House assemblies take place once every fortnight, bringing staff and students together to give important house messages. The House system gives members a wide range of opportunities to ‘compete’ against other students, staff, the other Houses and even against themselves, earning reward points in the process. The sixth form Academic Achievement / Academic Concern system directly impacts everyone, positive and negative points are allocated to students and impact on House standings. The aim of this system is for outstanding academic performance in the quest to reward the most points to the student chosen sixth form charities. Sixth form student can apply to be one of the four House Captains and work alongside the Head of Houses in a leadership role.
Throughout the year students have many chances to take part in competitions, events and fund raising for the four house charities. Currently we have raised over £15,000 since starting the House system in 2011 with each student having a say on raising the money and who should benefit from it.
