House Points

The House System is designed to embody the values and ethos of the school and aims to be an integral part of our school community. It is our ambition that the Head of House’s and the School Council will work together to create a stronger pupil voice to motivate students and further the community spirit of the school.

Our aim is to provide every pupil in each house with the following:

  • A sense of belonging within the school community
  • Opportunities to develop social, intellectual, physical and practical skills
  • A sense of achievement both inside and outside of the classroom
  • Fun and excitement through competition
  • Opportunities for leadership
  • An awareness of individual and collective responsibility


At Hoyland Common Primary School, our House Point system is designed to foster a sense of camaraderie and healthy competition among our pupils. We have four distinct house teams: Wentworth, Strafford, Fitzwilliam, and Rockingham, each named after localities in Hoyland and historically influential families in the area. Upon enrolment, every student is randomly assigned to one of these houses, and throughout their time at HCPS, they have the opportunity to earn house points. These points are accrued through various means, including classroom participation, displaying good manners, exemplifying spotlight behaviours and embodying our school values. At the end of each term, the house with the highest points is rewarded with a special whole house prize. Our Heads of Houses are a fundamental part of our house system and their role is diverse, they lead their houses during sporting events, distribute house point rewards to individuals, and diligently tally weekly house points, creating a vibrant and supportive house spirit within our school community.
