Welcome to the House System at PRS!
We are a dynamic team of six members of staff, totally dedicated to the six Forms, Form Tutors and Co-Tutors that we each support and each Tutee that belongs to each Form.
Our main roles, apart from looking after the well-being of all those in our respective Houses, include leading assemblies, monitoring the achievement points, behaviour points, rewards, reports and attendance, collating the 'Stars of the Week' and sharing them, as well as organising the 'Budday' activity, running the Equipment and Uniform detentions, organising the Rewards trips, supporting any Form competition and liaising with our Sixth Form House Captains and of course, you, the parents.
It is a demanding but gratifying job that brings us closer together and puts us at the core of the school community and we are very grateful for the support that you give us as we thrive to make sure that your children “Enjoy and Achieve”.
We have six houses; Chequers, Chiltern, Icknield, Pyrtle Spring, Ridgeway and Whiteleaf. These are named after the iconic areas that surround Princes Risborough School. We hope that all students feel proud to belong to their House and strive to be the best, not only for themselves but also for their fellow House members.
Team Motivation and Rewards
The rewards system encourages students to work as a team and to support every member of their House. A wide range of events will take place throughout the school year to promote community spirit and healthy competition between the Houses. This includes individual houses partaking in a MUFTI day (casual clothes), to 'Star of the Week' awards, through to day trips out to theme parks.
