House system

When students join Ibstock Community College they also join our system of four houses

You will be part of a vertical tutor group and a member of a house. Your house is a community and your behaviour, your involvement and your attitude will reflect on the people in your house and the whole college community. As part of a house, students join a team of staff and students who are an important source of support. As well as house assemblies, where students join together for celebration, students have a range of opportunities to represent their house in competitive sport, artistic events and charity fund-raising.

Students have been responsible for raising money for Children in Need and Comic Relief as well as frequent sporting challenges and competitions.
