House System

Our students, their experience, their progress, their well-being and their needs are at the centre of everything we do as a college. Our ethos and values are central to our culture, organisation and student success. The attention we give to ensuring our students are safe and well cared for is a key priority for the college.

Witchford’s experienced and dedicated team of staff ensure that all students have the maximum opportunity to achieve and succeed both academically and personally.

Students with special educational needs (SEND) are supported by our highly experienced, specialist team of professionals who offer support both in and out of lessons. Students can access our SEND department, which is now located alongside the Cabin, before, during and after College making use of the excellent range of facilities it has to offer.

House system
The college is divided into four houses led by a Head of House who provides guidance, support and challenge to the students under their care, right from day one. Through detailed monitoring, in conjunction with subject teachers, they help to ensure that any barriers or potential barriers to learning and progress are addressed rapidly and effectively.

House competitions form an integral part of the House system and, in being part of the House structure, students form friendships and good relationships with other year groups ensuring a safe and welcoming feel to the College.

In this time of Covid, our Heads of House have particular oversight of a year group in order to ensure consistency and a permanent point of contact for students and families. However, students remain in their houses and we expect to return fully to the house system next academic year.
