House System

“Igniting a passion for learning”

Students at Merstham Park School are part of the ‘Merstham Park and GLF Schools family’ where they will feel a sense of belonging and a sense of responsibility towards themselves and others and our House System is just one way in which we can do this.

At Merstham Park School, we pride ourselves on being an inclusive school with people at the heart of all that we do to build a community to serve our community.

Our pastoral system is different from almost all other schools and really does put our students first. Tutors will teach their students for Integrated Teaching Projects throughout the week. This will enable strong, positive and profound relationships to be established between families and school. Our aim is for tutors to be a child’s ‘safe-adult’, an individual they trust and will approach when they require support – this will also extend to parents and carers.

The names for the Houses were chosen to celebrate our local area. The Houses: Gatton, Mercers, Nutfield and Priory are all local landmarks.

Each House have a clear identity created by their Head of House and House Captain team. The House system increases the strong bond and sense of community that is felt across the school. As House members, all students have a wide range of opportunities to work together and to compete against other Houses in a variety of events. Some of these take part as part of lessons; some run during lunchtimes and after school.

Students are allocated a House when they join and stay in that House throughout their time at Merstham Park. They are encouraged to earn points for their House through their studies and get the chance to take part in regular competitions with the other Houses.

The benefit of the House Systems is that it gives every student, regardless of their ability, the chance to take part in a wide range of activities and in so doing develop their self-esteem.

Our House system also ensures that our students get the opportunity to experience school life beyond the academic curriculum. For example, there is an annual inter-house competition, regular reward events, charity days and many other inter-house events throughout the year.
