House Points

In May 2013, Mayfield School launched its new vertical house system to staff and pupils.

Tutor groups are now made up of pupils from years 7-11.

The house system is designed to embrace the family ethos that Mayfield School is striving to achieve. Students are organised into vertical tutor groups, featuring a mix of different year groups in order to provide role models and a 'family' feel that will enable students to understand what is expected of them in every year of the school.

Tutors are the first point of call for students and parents, and their Head of House is responsible for students' pastoral care throughout the school.

As part of the new structure, a split morning break has been introduced. Pupils from Intrepid and Endeavour have their morning breaks first, followed by tutor time. Pupils from Discovery and Victory go to tutor time first, followed by their morning break.

Throughout the year we run a variety of inter-house competitions:
