The House system is an important part of school life. Each pupil belongs to one of four houses.

Hepworth (Red)

Mozart (Blue)

Nightingale (Green)

Shakespeare (Yellow)

There are a number of competitions throughout the year in which the children compete against each other while proudly representing their House. Annual events include House Poetry, Cross Country, Sports competitions, General Knowledge, Charity events and Sports Day and there are regular additions to the calendar of House events.

Each House is led by a member of staff and all members of staff are attached to a house. A House Captain is elected by the pupils. The Year 6 pupils are given the opportunity to nominate themselves as the most eligible candidate to lead their House to victory. A democratic voting process occurs in September and the elected Captain leads their House for the year. Siblings are usually assigned to the same house.

House points are awarded for a range of achievements: academic and sporting effort and progress, exemplary attitude and behaviour.

The House Shield is awarded each Friday in assembly to the House which has been awarded the most points that week. House points are visible to the whole school community outside the Main Hall. Each half term the winning house is rewarded with cakes and squash at break.
