The House System 

Our four Houses:

In September 2016 we introduced a House System at Alderman Knight. Each pupil is allocated to a House which they will stay in for the whole of their school career.


At AKS pupils earn House Points for good work, effort or behaviour. Rewards are then given to pupils and a house based upon the amount of House Points they earn.

House Meetings & Events

Each house has half-termly meetings to discuss future competitions and upcoming events. In the first meeting of the year they will also choose a House Charity in which they will aim to raise money for across the year. Pupils will then be encouraged to come up with ideas of how they can raise money and put on these events.


Throughout the year there will be enriching and sometimes competitive activities that will focus around the House System, such as:

  • Sports Day

  • Cooking Events & the Village Fair

  • Inter-House Sports Events (e.g. Football, Boccia, Touch Rugby)

  • Subject Projects



House Captains

A Year 11 pupil each year will be assigned the role of House Captain in term 4 for the year. They will have a key role

in organising events and meetings. They will also act as a mentor to new pupils who have recently joined the house. The role of House Captain will last for a whole academic year, but these pupils will have to consistently act as a role model to others throughout that year. Pupils can nominate themselves or be nominated by staff to take on this role and then pupils within their house will have an anonymous vote for who they would like as their captain.


The House Captain will:

  • Assist Head of House when necessary

  • Be a role model in terms of attitude, work ethic, manners, and appearance

  • Provide inspiration and motivation to all pupils in the House

  • To attend school functions as required, in order to represent the school and the house (e.g. Open Day)

  • They will also be given additional responsibilities (e.g. running tuck shop, helping with Drinks & Cake/Fruit)

  • Collect the House Cup, when their House wins it
