“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.
"Don't stop until you're proud."
St Albans House thrives on team spirit, perseverance and enthusiasm. We narrowly missed out on winning the house competition last year, so we are back this year full of determination.
Miss McCullagh, Head of House, hopes to bring success and unity to the students of St Albans House. We have two committed and enthusiastic House Captains, Helena Crowie and Sophie Philbrook, who are dedicated in supporting the younger years in our house events at Bishop Ramsey. As a team, we are looking for all of our students to get involved in house events by demonstrating their talents and supporting one another.
“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.

As the new Head of York, I am hoping to build on the success of previous years to push our house to the top! Given the dedication and drive to succeed I have seen from members of York, I have no doubt that we are strong contenders this year.
The bright yellow lanyards of York represent the vibrant and positive nature of this house. Last year we went from strength to strength with our winning combination of hard work, great team spirit and sheer determination. Sports Day was the deciding event and we competed well to ensure we came in second place. Two years in a row we have come so close to winning the House competition and this has made us more determined than ever to get our trophy!
We have very committed and enthusiastic House Captains from Year 13 and a very strong team of Vice Captains from Year 12. They are working to support and push all members of York to success in hopes that 2017-2018 will be our year!
