Orchard Park High School

House system

All students are placed into one of our five houses at the start of their Orchard Park Journey. Our houses were named by our students for people of significance who they felt have best demonstrated our four key values in their lifetimes. 

Students earn character points every day that count towards house totals and there are also weekly house based activities that students and staff can work together to achieve house points for. 

At the end of every term, the house with the highest character points is rewarded with a house breakfast/afternoon tea and the winning house at the end of the year wins our House trophy and a House celebration.
