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


Pupils are assigned to one of the four houses on entrance to the school in Foundation Stage where they remain until the end of Year 6; where possible younger siblings will become a member of the same house.

Each member of staff is also attached to a house and a member of SLT is Head of each House: Mr T is head of Wentworth, Mrs Robinson is head of Fitzwilliam, Mr Lickley is head of Strafford and Miss Redfearn is head of Rockingham.

Each house has two designated Year 6 Head’s of House who will act as representatives for all the students in their house throughout the year by: helping co-ordinate house teams, organise activities and events and represent their house at relevant meetings.

Each House is in competition with each other to achieve the highest number of house points at the end of each term and most importantly by the end of the year when there will be a trophy awarded.

Regular house point totals are shared in celebration assembly on a Friday afternoon.

Pupils can contribute to their house point totals in a number of ways both in and out of the classroom through achievement in learning, participation intra-house sporting events and demonstrating our school values.
