“United we stand, divided we fall.” (Æsop)
Rochester house is more than just a name given to some of the students at Bishop Ramsey School. Rochester represents a family of students who work together to achieve greatness.
Our red lanyards reflect the passion and energy of our house and our determined and competitive approach allows every student to show their talents and shine. We encourage students by providing a supportive atmosphere filled with enthusiasm and motivation so that each student can reach their full potential.
Led by the Head of House, Mr Campbell, our strong team consists of two superb House Captains (Daniel Gibson & Bukola Adedeji) and a team of Vice Captains and Reps. We support and encourage students to join as a team, get involved and utilise their talents to lead us to success.

As the new Head of St Albans, I am hoping to inspire as many of our students to become successful in whatever they choose to do. By implementing John Woodens' principles, from his pyramid of success, I am looking to motivate St Albans house and its students to become successful both in & out of school and in their future ambitions.
Our House Captains, Helena Crowie & Sophie Philbrook, the team of vice captains & I will be spending as much time as possible with our students in the school week to return that winning feeling in St Albans house. We are determined to get students involved and develop a hunger for success in the house events.
“Do your best and enjoy yourself. As long as you do those two things I am happy”
As a teacher in Bishop Ramsey School I am able to advance the educational learning of the students; however I personally believe that a student’s life in school should not solely be focused upon educational gains. As Head of Manchester House it is my aim to holistically improve students’ school experience, focusing on character development as well as bringing fun and enjoyment into their school day.
By competing in House Events students will have a chance to compete and socialise with other students in and out of their year groups in a friendly yet competitive setting. As well as this, students will subconsciously learn more about themselves and life in general through the experiences they gain. Academically successful students may face a challenge that they do not know how to instinctively overcome; there are many valuable lessons to be learned through failure. Contrastingly students who may not naturally shine in a classroom setting will have opportunities to develop and show off pre-existing skills and talents; every student deserves recognition of success.
“ So often the students you are trying to inspire are the ones that end up inspiring you”
I am proud to be the Head of Salisbury, our house is one full of fun, team spirit and ambition. We strive to achieve through friendship and hard work.
Our kaleidoscope of talent will shine through this year with us competing in house cooking, netball, dodgeball, football and debating, to name just a few. We are always looking for fresh ideas and new faces, as our new year 7s join us we are blessed with a whole new wave of new enthusiasm and ambition. Every new addition brings another string to our bow.
Alongside Ms Clyne as Head of House we have Sarah Howden as Captain as well as a whole range of Year 12 vice captains to give a true representation of our wonderful house each with a different strength to offer advice and encouragement.
The door is always open and everyone is welcome to join us on our journey to take our house to the top!

The green ties and lanyards of Exeter leave all other students envious of the success of this House. Over the past few years Exeter have continued to grow and build a strong cohesive family based on commitment, determination and hard work. The phenomenal team spirit greatly contributed to last year’s success under the leadership of Mr Drury.
Exeter were crowned House Champions in 2016/17 after a fantastic year, topped off with an outstanding victory at Sports Day. Under the guidance of the head of House and House Captains Chelsea Pledge and Gabriella Otakponmwenhi, Exeter House are determined to successfully defend their crown.
With a strong team of Vice-Captains in Year 12 and fantastic House Reps in each form, the future is bright for Exeter House. A huge congratulations to all students who contributed to the success of the House in the last academic year. Keep up the good work.
Coming together is the beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success. Henry Ford
The sunny yellow lanyards of York reflect the cheerful and friendly members of this house. Last year we went from strength to strength with our winning combination of hard work, great team spirit and sheer determination.
Last year we came so close to winning the House competition and this has made us more determined than ever to get our trophy back. The final competition which was Sports Day was the deciding event but we competed well to ensure we came in second place.
We have two very committed and enthusiastic House Captains this year – Sophie Scarlett, Mitchell Lamborne and Chelsea Marfo. They are dedicated to help and support the younger members of York to enjoy all the house events.
We also have a very strong team of Vice Captains from years 12 and amazing House Reps from each year.
