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
Head of House Grey – Mr O Davies
Lee – Red – the Lee family who donated Kinver Edge to the National Trust
Head of House Lee – Mr E Parry
Somery – Green – John de Somery, Earl of Dudley
Head of House – Mrs N Mouzer
Whittington – Blue – the famous Whittington family of Whittington Manor House
Head of House – Miss E Brookes
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.
