Gunnersbury Catholic School

House System

"Gunnersbury Catholic School is a thriving, vibrant and caring learning community within which pupils are stretched intellectually and foster a love of learning, whilst feeling valued, happy and safe" (OFSTED)

On entry into Gunnersbury Catholic School, pupils are allocated to a House in which they remain for their whole school career.  Our Houses all have a connection to key people who have shaped the school’s history :

  • Bourne (Head of House is Mrs Gomez-Adams)
  • Roche (Head of House is Mr Cisse)
  • Newman (Head of House is Ms Cullen)
  • Warren (Head of House is Mr Buckley)
  • Pole (Head of House is Ms Anstee)
  • Dunstan (Head of House is Mr Parker)

Throughout the academic year, inter-house competitions and activities are organised across academic, sporting and musical events. The House System underpins the school’s reward system and celebrates success through merits, commendations and Headteachers Awards. House Captains and House Sports Captains are appointed in each Form Group to help organise events and encourage participation.  These are ably supported by the School Council which comprises of pupils from each year group and is chaired by the Head Boy and Head Girl.

The House Studies Cup, awarded to the House gaining the greatest number of House Points in the academic year, was presented in 2017 to Pole House.

The MacPherson Games Cup, awarded to the House gaining the greatest number of points for sporting achievement, was presented in 2017 to Warren House.

The Champion House Cup, awarded to the House which has the best overall points score from both the MacPherson Games Cup and the House Studies Cup, was awarded in 2017 to Roche House.
