The House System

At High Tunstall, we operate Year Teams which act as supportive pastoral teams for the students to access. All students also join a House when joining High Tunstall. The aim of these houses is to create a sense of vertical student teams to bond through rewards, competitions, charity events, assemblies, high standards, and student voice.

What We Do

As stated there are distinct arms to the work of the House system. Please see examples of these here …


Every Faculty operates at least 2 competitions per year, with the vast majority being open to all year groups. Based on student voice, the majority of competitions also occur in College during lessons or form time to encourage wide participation. Please see below
