In Gold House we strive to be the best house in the college, in every way.
We encourage all of our students to be determined and be the best that they can be. We always have the College’s core values in mind (CARE, RESPECT, ASPIRATION and RESPONSIBILITY) and it is an expectation that our students demonstrate these in and outside of their College life. Gold House is made up of 12 vertical form groups who meet once a day for tutor time. During this time, form groups follow a programme of activities which are undertaken in mixed year groups. The focus of the activities are based around achievement, attendance, numeracy, literacy and PSHE topics. As well as working hard, in Gold House we like to play hard, particularly in the inter house sport competitions. We have been the champions of house sports events for the past 2 years!
This year has also seen us have great success in the whole school rewards competition, where houses compete throughout the year in regard to Attendance, Behaviour, Aspiration Awards, Punctuality and other aspects of school life. We have led the competition this year from a very early stage and we have maintained this high standard throughout the year, showing ourselves to be the best house in the school!
Gold House has a great tradition in raising money for charity. Our House charity is the Teenage Cancer Trust, inspired and in remembrance of former student Adam Sharp. Since we began raising money for this charity in 2007, we have donated over £5000.

TThroughout the year we run numerous charity events including ‘The Great Gold House Bake Off’ and stalls at our Christmas and Summer fayres. We have a house council that are always pro-active in thinking of new fundraising ideas and carrying them out with great success.
We have high expectations of the students within Gold House as we strive to continue to be the best house in the school, ultimately meaning that our students achieve great success through their time at KC.
