The Rowans AP Academy

Inspiring change for a brighter future

House System

Our academy house system is an integral part of our school community and provides pupils with a sense of identification. The school has designed a vertical House system which has three core values: Healthy competition, ownership and determination. Every pupil and staff member at The Rowans are assigned to a house. 

The four houses are:

  • Titans
  • Gladiators  
  • Warriors  
  • Spartans

The house names were chosen by pupils at The Rowans, who then designed logos to represent each house.

House points:

The House system focuses on celebrating success. When a pupil demonstrates our core values of: kindness, commitment or resilience they are rewarded with house points.

These points all tally up towards the house total and help determine the overall winning house at the end of the year. Pupils can gain extra points for their house if they are awarded student of the week, or receive a positive postcard home. Throughout the academic year pupils also have opportunities to participate in a number of inter-house competitions, where points can be gained for their houses.

Mr Ketcher is the House Coordinator who leads all of the activities that Houses become involved in. He is supported by the four head of houses, Mr Ketcher is always happy to hear new and creative ideas from pupils, parents and staff for activities that Houses can become involved in.
