Houses, Student Leadership Team and Charities
All students are allocated a house according to their form group. The five houses; Hera, Hermes, Athene, Artemis and Aphrodite are incorporated into school life at SHSG through the house point system. Student are awarded with house points in accordance to their attendance, academic achievement, house competitions and also based on their contributions to the school community, all in aid of battling for the school house cup, awarded at the end of the year.
The house captains work closely with the student body to raise money for charity. Over £13,000 was raised for various charities throughout the last academic year. Charity week is an opportunity for students in different houses to raise as much money for the school charities as they can.
Charity Week was a great success, raising almost £1200 for our 3 chosen charities; MIND, Havens Hospice and Mencap. Where's Wally, a Lip Sync Battle and Bootelicious were amongst the activities on offer and students and staff stepped outside of their comfort zone to make the events good fun.
