The house system provides valuable opportunities for students to work towards a common goal with children from various backgrounds and with different experiences. The system benefits students in Key Stage 3 by providing role models, and allows older students the chance to take on the responsibility (as House Prefects and Captains) of organising activities and helping to solve any problems raised by their peers in the process.
The house system celebrates achievement and promotes the sense of community and collaboration within the school. The names of the Houses are:
Melbourn believes in giving every student an opportunity to have a say about their school. The whole student body is given the opportunity to feedback on events through a variety of meetings and make suggestions about what the School Council should be tackling via their house representatives.
The School Council consists of the Prefect team and representatives from each form. They meet every half term to discuss ideas that have been raised. They also form Focus Groups to explore particular issues in more depth. In the past, students have been involved in making decisions about uniform, use of mobile technology and reviewing the rewards and sanctions policy.
The Prefects welcome you to the Melbourn Village College family which has helped us, endlessly, with achieving things we never thought possible. The school has supported us throughout our years here at MVC. We hope you enjoy you time at Melbourn as much as we did, working with the staff and other students to succeed now and in the future. At MVC everybody really is somebody.
