Sonakul is known as the House with great Spirit. Sonakulians strive collaboratively towards achieving success, understanding that it is not just about the winning, it is about the taking part. The mighty Oranges take pride in all that they do in both academics and extra-curricular activities. The House has strong ties with its chosen charity and students recognise the importance of supporting the wider community. o:p /o:p
We are a House that recognises each student as an individual and whatever your talent or ability, there is always an opportunity to take part in a wide range of House events and charity work. Sonakulians support and encourage each other both on and off the field as well as embracing leadership roles within the House. Sonakul has a strong student lead leadership team which is the driving force behind the House’s strong identity.
The Tutor Team plays a strong role within the House. Tutors are an integral part of school life, offering pastoral support as well as supporting their tutees both academically and at House events.
Sonakulians aim to respect themselves, each other and the world around them. The House provides a safe environment so that students can become well rounded individuals, support one another and offer a sense of family to each other within the House and as a result Sonakul has developed very strong ties with its Alumni.
Head of Sonakul House
“Sonakul, to me, means family. I feel a sense of belonging whenever I am around other Sonakulians, even when I don't know someone well, I feel supported by them and I truly believe we are the friendliest House. If we don't win, we always stay true to our efforts. Being part of Sonakul has pushed me to try new things, and taught me to take pride in my abilities no matter my skill set, knowing that it is the act of being willing to try and to be in a team that is the most important part.”

“Sonakul is not just a House, it's a place where everyone loves and cares for each other. Sonakul has taught me to forgive, be kind, learn from my mistakes and I am proud to be in Sonakul.”
