House Naming Competition and Letters

Competition time! The formation of three new Houses in September has set in motion a prestigious competition to find new House names.

Every student, plus those joining in September, is offered the challenge to name one of the Houses, or indeed, all three. Imagine being the student who named a GMS House; its a rare opportunity to have your name in fame.

Why new Houses? Well, from September there will be nine forms, to mirror the nine classes in each year group and alongside that three new Houses. So, of course, with three new Houses has to come three new House names.

This historic launch starts now and closes on 13th July. The competition, which GMS hopes many students will take part in is open to every current student, plus those joining Great Marlow in September 2020. Everyone eligible is invited to nominate names for the new Houses, whose colours will be red, blue and green.

How to Submit Entries

To enter, students just need to email their Director of Learning with a suggested name for each of the new Houses. Each name has to be supported by reasons, or rationale, stated persuasively in no more than 50 words. The closing date for all entries is 3.00 pm on Monday 13th July. As well as the prestige of being the one who named a GMS House, there will also be a prize.

Below are links to the most recent letters from Mr Ford. In them, he details the rationale behind the change in form classes and the change in the structure of the Houses.
