Treviglas Community College has a well-established house system. There are 4 houses: Fistral, Porth, Towan and Tolcarne. Each house is made up of vertical tutor groups incorporating students ranging from Years 7-11.
On entry into the college, each student is allocated a house and tutor group; the student remains with that tutor group and in that house for the duration of his or her time at the college. When siblings join the college, they are placed within the same house and this underscores the family nature of the house system. The structure within the house system creates a positive ethos in the college enabling new students to integrate well and peer mentoring across the age ranges.
Each House elects two House Captains with additional Year Group Captains and Sports Captains chosen by their peers to support the work that is done in the houses.
Students meet daily with their tutor and members of their tutor group. There is a rota of house assemblies to which visiting speakers and outside organisations are invited. Many of these speakers are linked to the charities which are supported by individual houses. The charity work that is carried out by the houses plays an integral part in fostering an understanding of the outside world and has allowed the college to raise considerable funds over the years.
Throughout the year, there is a variety of inter-house competitions of a sporting and academic nature which create a positive competitive spirit amongst our students. The house system is led by the four Heads of Houses, providing support and direction for the well-being of our students and their achievement.
