King Edward VI Grammar School Chelmsford

The House System

DJBET电竞菠菜人 With a thriving school community of over 1000 students, KEGS aims to teach pupils self-discipline and standards of behaviour are expected to be high.  On arrival in Year 7 students are allocated to one of five mixed house form groups.  Each student is then allocated to one of four houses Holland (H) (blue), Mildmay (M) (yellow), Strutt (S) (green) and Tindal (T) (red).  They remain in their form groups from Years 7 to 9.  Then in Years 10 and 11 and in the Sixth Form different form groups are compiled.

Each House has a staff Head of House and a team of student House officials.  Students compete throughout the year in sporting, musical and theatrical events to gain points towards the House Championship. New entrants to the school are allocated a House - however, if there is a family connection the pupil may choose to be in the 'traditional' family House.  Students are awarded service ties for outstanding service in any area of school life.  Recognition of effort and engagement is key.  Subject progress is evaluated through term effort grades.  Every student is encouraged to participate, whatever his or her talents.
