St Wilfrid's Catholic School

Our House System is based around six houses that are all linked to Religious Orders which are located in Sussex .

The House system is vertical incorporating one form per year for each House.  We believe that charity work is a vital aspect of our House system and each House has a charity attached to it as featured below. Competitions range from Quizzes, Caption Competitions., Subject Competitions, Photography Competitions, Fairtrade Competitions plus more!

  • Augustine House:      Crawley Open House
  • Benedict House:         Friends of Embark
  • Catherine House:       St Catherine’s Hospice
  • Dominic House:          St Vincent de Paul Society
  • Edith House:                Catholic Children's Society
  • Francis House:            Chestnut Tree House


Our House System is used in the school to promote achievement of the students in its widest forms in a totally positive way, from the classroom to the sports field and helping out around the school to drama productions. It is promoted by positive competition and by committed and experienced staff leaders of the five Houses.

All students can collect House Points for achievement and these go direct onto their student record. If a student finishes in the Top 20 as the highest house point achiever in the school then they could be in line to receive the one Outstanding Contribution to School Life Award.

Our House Leaders are as follows:

  • Augustine House:                    Mrs Zeidler
  • Benedict House:                       Mr Calver
  • Catherine House:                     Miss Papanastasiou
  • Dominic House:                        Miss Beck
  • Edith House:                              Miss Muncey
  • Francis House:                          Miss Perrin
