House System

Our four houses are named after famous historical people:







When a child reaches the milestone of 50 house points they receive a Bronze Award in the Friday celebration assembly and a letter home, 100 points – Silver Award and a letter home, 150 – Gold Award and a phone call home, 200 – Platinum award and a letter home, and a voucher of some description.


House points are collated on a Friday afternoon by House Captains and the running total is given in Monday’s celebration assembly.


Each week the winning House receives a House Cup, at the end of the academic year, the overall winning House receives a House Shield.

The House system is also an important part of Sports’ Day, where children compete in family groups to achieve points for their House.


At the end of the day, the House that has accumulated the most points receives a Cup, which is displayed in our trophy cabinet until the next Sports Day.
