Kinver High prides itself on its very active House System whereby all staff and students are assigned to one of four houses.
Our well-established house system comprising four houses: Grey, Lee, Somery and Whittington; all take their name from historical families with strong local associations.
Each house is identified by a colour
Grey – Yellow – the Grey family of Enville Hall
Lee – Red – the Lee family who donated Kinver Edge to the National Trust
Somery – Green – John de Somery, Earl of Dudley
Whittington – Blue – the famous Whittington family of Whittington Manor House
As well as regular inter-house competitions throughout the year culminating in the annual Sports Cavalcade in the summer term, houses compete in the year long house point competition for the Allen Cup. It is awarded to the house with the greatest number of points.
