House-System_R02

House System

All students at the College belong to one of the four houses: Cranmer (Yellow), Latimer (Red), Ridley (Blue), or Ryle (Green). The Houses are named after Christian leaders.

Each house has its own unique shield and bible verse reflecting its identity and character.

Over the school year, students have the opportunity to contribute to their house in a variety of ways, including earning John Lambert points, participating in events such as sporting or performing arts competitions, and assisting with Charity Days.

Cranmer

Thomas Cranmer was born in 1489 and became the first Protestant Archbishop of Canterbury, the leader of the Church of England and an adviser to King Henry VIII and King Edward VI. As Archbishop, he established the English Bible for Parish churches and drew up the Anglican Book of Common Prayer. Being a great supporter of the Anglican Church, he was not liked by the Catholic Queen of England, Mary I. In 1556, the Queen had Cranmer convicted of heresy and he was burnt at the stake as he refused to say anything that would offend God.

Ridley

Nicholas Ridley was born in England in 1300. He became Bishop of Rochester and later Bishop of London in 1530. In 1553, on Queen Mary’s ascension to the throne, Queen Mary had Ridley arrested. He was condemned for heresy in 1554. He was prepared to die rather than say something that contradicted what he thought God decreed in the Bible. He was burnt at the stake in Oxford in 1555.

Latimer

Hugh Latimer was born in 1485 and rose to become Bishop of Worcester in 1535. He was a powerful preacher of God’s word and supporter of England’s poor. Queen Mary had him arrested for treason in 1553. Latimer refused to stop preaching God’s word, even though he knew the penalty would be death. He was found guilty at his trial and was burnt at the stake in 1555.

Ryle

John Ryle was born in England in 1816. He was appointed the first Bishop of Liverpool where he served God for 20 years. Ryle wrote many books and pamphlets about the Christian faith and millions have been sold since. In his life and writings, Ryle insisted that the Gospel was truth and he was able to bring many people to follow Christ.
