The House System is an integral part of the lives of pupils, parents and staff at DESS. Every pupil and member of staff (with the exception of the PE team) belong to one of our 4 Houses: Jaguars, Leopards, Lynx and Panthers.
The House system helps to create a sense of belonging within the wider DESSC family and it fosters an ethos of teamwork and community spirit.
Throughout the year, children are encouraged to take part in and support a variety of fun activities and events to earn points for their House. Both achievement and participation are celebrated regularly through phase and year group assemblies.
We rely on our wonderfully enthusiastic house leaders throughout the school to collect points and instill our house spirit across the curriculum. With 120 house leaders in total, they help to run and organise whole school house events, along with meeting regularly to discuss new ideas.
