The Warriner School

House System

Each Warriner student is a member of one of our five houses, named after influential British icons. Our houses provide an excellent range of competitive activities, from Spelling Bees to Sports Day, whilst also enabling students to be part of a 'vertical' system in which they may be supported by and learn from students in other year groups at key points in their school careers.
At the end of the Summer Term the House Trophy is awarded to the house with the most points.

Alan Turing played a key role in cracking the enigma code during the second world war whilst also being the key figure in the creation of modern computing.

Seacole House 

Head of House: Mrs L Webb
House Colour: Yellow

Mary Seacole was a Jamaican-British nurse who established hospitals for British troops during the Crimean war. She also visited the battlefield, sometimes under fire, to nurse the wounded, and became known as 'Mother Seacole'.  Her reputation rivalled that of Florence Nightingale yet she was under-represented in history due to the colour of her skin.
