KES is split into three Houses that compete throughout the year to earn House points, win prizes and awards and raise money for charity. Students are also able to earn individual prizes, including vouchers and more expensive electronic devices. The Houses are Romans, Saxons and Vikings.
Students can earn House points in lessons for any of the following: homework, effort, independence, progress, literacy, outstanding work, revision, target met, teacher bonus and growth mindset.
Students also earn points outside the classroom for being part of the KES community. Some examples are: taking part in an after-school club, representing their House in KES Sports, or being part of the Student Council. Students are also able to earn points for displaying the KES values and ethos.
Each Faculty sets out a series of House Competitions that take place throughout the academic year; these are advertised within school on the display screens.
