On entry to school our pupils are placed in one of four houses: Earth, Air, Fire or Water. Each house has a House Captain and Vice Captain.
Pupils may be awarded house points for many reasons, including academic, sporting or musical achievements or exemplary behaviour. Each term the houses compete to gain the most house points and win the house trophy, which is then decorated with ribbons in the house colours. At the end of each academic year the house with the highest overall number of house points has their name engraved on the house shield.
We take lots of opportunities to get together in our houses, to have fun and strengthen our bonds. It's a great way for the younger children to get to know their older peers.
Every year we have a House Festival where we get together in our houses to perform songs and present art projects, as well as making individual entries into the competition. In 2020 Air House won the House Festival trophy. The theme for our performance assembly was "Africa" and each house sang a song in an original African language or dialect and also produced a piece of artwork to reflect the theme.
