All Students and Staff at Heathside are split into our four houses, Kestrels, Eagles, Falcons or Hawks.
We envisage that the House system will create a sense of identity, camaraderie, community and belonging to students and staff alike. Students will be given the opportunity to work with other members of their House, enabling them to work with different friendship and year groups. The system will also allow older students to act as positive role models for students in the younger years.
Heads of House:
Like most successful teams, each House has a member of staff acting as Head of House. These are enthusiastic and dedicated members of staff, whose role it is to oversee all House activities. Each Head of House is supported by a House Captains who are selected from Year 11 students by application and it is their role to support the Heads of House throughout the year.
Students will be able to acquire House Points for their House in a number of ways: competing in House competitions set up by Curriculum Areas throughout the academic year, producing good work and effort in subjects, whole school events such as Sports Day or in Year group competitions activities
Heath and Well-being
In 2013 the Youth Sport Trust selected Heathside as the Health and Wellbeing lead school for Surrey.
This has been achieved through many exciting projects over the last two years including sporting colours, health and wellbeing surveying and the comprehensive extra curricular PE programme on offer to all students and staff at Heathside to name just a few. Health and Wellbeing has always been a core focus at Heathside but the additional funding provided by the Youth Sport Trust has enabled the PE Department to ensure that Health and Wellbeing is at the forefront of student thinking.
Heathside is committed to ensuring that all students and staff have a deep understanding of the benefits of exercise and a healthy balanced diet and in turn the lifelong effects that this can have on mental and social health as well as academic achievement and life expectancy.
