House System - Regent International School | British Curriculum | Best School in Dubai
Our triumphs earn us points, our defeats make us stronger and wiser

 We encourage healthy competition and promote the sense of being part of a team. These two points are fulfilled through the many opportunities for pupils to earn points for their ‘House’.

KHDA Report

We learn to sing and to use our voices, to create and compose music.

We even have the opportunity to learn how to play different musical instruments. Our music teachers are very talented. They even taught some of us how to floss.

Possibilities seem infinite at Regent.

There are no limits in my child’s imagination about what he can do. Children are encouraged to take chances, try anything and not be afraid.

RIS Parent

The strong sense of community makes Regent more than just a great place for study,

it’s a great place to socialise and make new friends.

Regent has given my daughter a new start.

This school has encouraged her to gain confidence and to express herself despite mistakes. The teachers are always available to help and laugh with her.

Whole School House System

On entry to the school, each Regent student is allocated to a House. We always seek a balance of boys and girls in each House as well as a balance of age groups. Pupils wear a school cap which represents the colour of the House they are part of. This adds to the pupils sense of belonging and identity.

Here are our Regent Houses: Green Eagles, Yellow Hawks, Red Falcons and Blue Kestrels.

The House system supports our ethos of positive education, collaboration and shared ambitions. When awarding pupils with House Points, there is an emphasis on the behaviour and efforts of students as well as achievements. We value and recognise the character strengths and learning behaviours of our learners as well as their positive actions and responses to others. Through our house points system, we truly support and embody the school vision that inspiring minds and building character will result in success and fulfilment.

Using sport as a facilitator students are expected to collaborate within houses to earn house points. To enable this students are challenged each lesson to practice and implement new practical skills into team games and win points for their house. They are also awarded points based on their tactical decision making and co-operation levels as part of their teams. The points are tallied every half term and the winning house receives awards for excellent performance.

Each year, we recruit House Captains to act as key advocates and leaders of each house. House Captains play a very important role in school, acting as student leaders and setting a positive example of behaviour, attitude and work ethic to others. Each year, there is a sense of anticipation and excitement to see who will be receiving the House Cup in recognition of the collective efforts and achievements of each house. Let’s see who will be the winners for this academic year!

Leadership & Responsibility

We promote leadership and responsibility, especially for the older students who take on important roles within their House. Students become role models for their peers by putting in the hard work and effort, especially the Key Stage 2 and 3 Students.

Learning and Rewarding

Through a range of activities and small roles within the Houses, we promote curiosity and creativity in the students. The system provides cross-school/subject opportunities as well as awarding everyday points so that each and every student has the opportunity to contribute to the success of their House.

Adventure & Memories

With the chance of contributing to their House, students will try new things and
compete in areas they may not have thought about before, thus
promoting confidence and a real sense of adventure!
