Caister Academy welcomes all new students and ensures they quickly feel part of the school community. The House System plays a key role in this by fostering team work and a sense of community through participation in healthy competition.
Since its inception in 2011, the House System has proven a great success, seeing staff and students working together and supporting each to enable a great sense of achievement and enjoyment.
On arrival at Caister Academy, each student is assigned to a House. There are four Houses, currently named in honour of the historic lifeboats of Caister Lifeboat Station: Neville, Burton, Leath and Beauchamp. Each House comprises students from all years and tutor groups. Siblings are placed in the same Houses.
