The Four Houses

At Kettering Buccleuch Academy every student and member of staff belongs to one of our four Houses; Braveheart, Griffin, Phoenix and Viking.

When new students join us they are placed in a House with siblings being in the same House as each other.

Throughout the academic year there are a range of competitions which are designed to promote healthy competition and help to establish a sense of belonging and community. These competitions range from traditional sporting activities to our very own versions of game shows such as Countdown, Catchphrase and University Challenge.

A House Co-ordinator is responsible for the promotion of, and participation in, House Competitions.

At all times during competitions our students and staff are asked to uphold our core values of respect, ambition and determination.

At the end of each academic year the winners of the House Championship are presented with The Buccleuch Cup as recognition for their achievements.
