Our Ethos House System:
Rainford’s House System is a natural extension of our ethos “Everyone Matters, Everyone Helps and Everyone Succeeds”. Through our vertical houses, we aim to promote a culture of collaboration and support, where everyone plays a part in the success of each individual and the entire school community.
“Everyone Matters” is emphasised through the smaller communities established within each House. Each student is assigned to a House, ensuring that are individually recognised, valued, and included. This sense of belonging and importance helps create a positive school culture where everyone’s unique strengths and contributions are celebrated.
“Everyone Helps” is encouraged through our in-House academic and pastoral mentoring programme. Older students provide guidance to younger ones, creating a supportive environment where everyone contributes to the growth and development of their peers.
“Everyone Succeeds” is promoted through healthy competition, academic recognition, and personal growth. Termly inter-House competitions, academic awards, and leadership opportunities provide avenues for students to excel and achieve their full potential. By promoting a culture of achievement and recognising individual accomplishments, the House System motivates students to strive for excellence.
Our House System reinforces the ethos of “Everyone Matters, Everyone Helps, Everyone Succeeds” by creating a supportive and inclusive environment within our school. It embodies the principles of collaboration, recognition, and personal growth whilst ensuring that every student is given the opportunity to thrive and succeed.

Our House Fundraising:
The school plays a vital role in supporting local charities and does it best to support national campaigns.
The school organise fundraising events such as bake sales, charity runs, and other events to raise money for local charities. These events not only generate funds but also create awareness about the causes they support.
We organise donation drives for essential items like food, clothing, school supplies, or toys. Students and their families can contribute these items, which are then donated to local charities or shelters.
Charity Drives and Campaigns:
We run charity campaigns and drives focused on specific causes or charities. These campaigns involve raising awareness, collecting funds, or encouraging volunteerism.
