As the gap narrows, find out which KPS House is leading the way this term

  08 December 2020

Our KPS House system

Throughout the year at KPS, our four school Houses compete in regular competitions on a variety of cross- department themes, with house points and prizes up for grabs each term!

Our four school houses are: Effra, Fleet, Tyburn & Walbrook- each with their own distinct personalities and strengths.

Each house has its own Student House Captain and Deputy House Captain, as well as a Head of House staff member.

For KPS, the House system allows students to build on a sense of community, identity and belonging within the wider school network, as well as enjoying some healthy competition between them and their peers.
