The children in Forms 1 to 6 are placed in one of three Houses: Aquila, Cygnus and Leo. House assemblies are organised once a month and House Captains are appointed to help select and encourage house teams and give general assistance to Head of House.
Our House system provides excellent opportunities for the development of competition in all aspects of school life. Pupils may earn house points for a piece of outstanding work, or gold stars for an example of initiative, helpfulness and also for participation in a wide range of activities. There is keen competition between the pupils to ensure that their House achieves as many house points as possible.
There are exciting competitions between the Houses in most sports and games, including football, hockey, netball, cross-country, swimming and cricket, finishing in our annual Sports Day in June, in which all pupils take part and parents are invited to attend.
House Trophies are presented in the termly Sports Assembly and the House Shield presented at Prize Giving in July.
