The Sele School

House System

At The Sele School, students are members of one of four Houses; Ambition, Challenge, Knowledge and Scholar.  These Houses are taken from our school ethos of I.S.C.A.L.E. Each House is competing for the House Cup. In addition, there are awards for the House with the most points for each half term.       

House Points totals at 19 July 2024 - the final result for the 2023 - 2024 school year  

As the students made ready to leave for the Summer Holiday the results of the House Cup, which had been kept a closely guarded secret, were announced. Scholar retain the trophy, Ambition second and Knowledge in third place. Challenge will no doubt come back in September determined to get onto the podium - Come on Challenge!    

The House system aims to provide a wide range of competitive activities that promote enjoyable student participation; increasing learning through experience whilst offering leadership, teamwork and organisational opportunities.


  • To provide an enjoyable competitive programme of events over the school year culminating in the annual award of the House Trophy to the Champion House.
