Our House system provides a supportive environment that encourages friendly competition, provides opportunities for students to assume responsibility and develop leadership abilities and enables students to make a positive contribution to their local community.
We promote achievement of all students in a positive way, from the classroom to the sports field and from helping out around the school to taking part in school productions. It is also a way of developing vertical integration in the school to complement the horizontal integration that the year system provides.
The House system supports and enriches the lives of students whilst they are at school and any house activities that are participated in will be rewarded. House activities take place throughout the year and students have involvement in participation and the organisation of these events. House Representatives liaise with staff regarding the organisation of House Competitions working together to make these events a success.
The House system is an integral aspect of life at The Adeyfield Academy. Students are allocated to a House when they enter the school based on their form group.
This year, our House system has chosen to support the local charity DENS. This charity was set up for people in Dacorum who are facing homelessness, poverty and social exclusion; to support and empower them to take the next positive step in their lives.
