Houses 

The Thomas Aveling School vertical house system was introduced in 2008 with the introduction of four new houses; Achilles, Cavalier, Resolute and Victory. The house names were inspired by the local history of Chatham dockyard with all 4 houses named after ships that had been built in the dockyard.

Our Vertical House System allows us to have a more personalised learning and student support system. It is a system built on mixed-age mentor groups, ranging from 11-18 with form mentors facilitating each group. It has three main purposes:

  1. to improve student outcomes
  2. to increase student mentoring, support and leadership
  3. to improve relationships and communication between parents, staff and students
