“Aspire not to have more but to be more”
Archbishop Oscar Romero
The House system is an integral part of life at The Holt School and aims to provide a sense of competition and fun through a range of school based activities. All students and members of staff are attached to one of seven houses which are named after historical guilds; each house is assigned a colour.
|House Name & Colour||Heads of House|
|Clothworkers – Orange||Miss Herron|
|Goldsmiths - Yellow||Mrs Phillips|
|Haberdashers – Pink||Mrs Connor|
|Lacemakers – Green||Mrs Priddy|
|Spinners – Red||Miss Penn|
|Tanners – Light blue||Mrs Rooms|
|Weaver - Purple||Miss Shephard|
House events run throughout the year with points being awarded for each event . The running total of points is regularly updated and students and staff can follow their score on the scoreboards on the weekly bulletin and on the house page on the school VLE.
