In order to accommodate our growing community at TWGSB it was decided to move from six to four houses. A competition to rename the houses was held; the winning choice was to name them after local stately homes and castles: Knole, Scotney, Hever and Ightham.
Students were allocated to a House when the changes were made or when they joined the school. The House Points they earn for excellent work and behaviour all contribute towards their House total, and competitions take place in different subjects and through events such as the crisp packet competition run at the beginning of 2019/20 to raise money for the Kent and Sussex Air Ambulance.
Each House has a member of staff who is Head of House, and Sixth Form Students as House Captains who are on the Senior Prefect Team.
