House Points


House System

The House System was launched September 2018. Students were involved in the naming of the houses, picking gemstones as the theme. The JCS houses are:

  • Jade
  • Topaz
  • Zircon
  • Amethyst
  • Citrine
  • Garnet

Each house has a member of staff as their Head of House with House Captains appointed from Years 11-13.

The aim of the House System is to give students a sense of belonging to their school community so they take pride in the school environment. The system is designed to give some healthy competition between students (and staff!) and allow them to develop a wider skill set.

Over the course of the year there will be many competitions where students can earn points for their house ranging from Music, Drama and Art to Science, Photography and Sports. Students will have the opportunity to apply for leadership roles within their house to promote and support the participation of their peers.
