There are seven houses at Lochside Academy. They are named after Lochs in Scotland. All pupils who attend Lochside Academy will become a member of a house. Wherever possible pupils will be in the same house as their brothers and sisters. A Guidance Teacher is in charge of each house. They are helped by a team of tutor teachers, a house captain and some prefects. Each house has it’s own badge and colour. Throughout the year there are lots of events, competitions and opportunities for pupils to gain house points. A trophy is won by the house with most points at the end of year Awards Ceremony.
