School Houses

In Year Six, as part of the additional responsibilities given to the children, are the roles of House Captains and Vice House Captains. These are very important roles in school and the children have to apply in writing, if they wish to be considered for the posts. The children make a speech at the first house assembly in September and are voted in by their house peers.

House Captains and Vice House Captains are expected to set an example to younger children, to embody the school values and contribute to the wider community.

They help the younger children, both in the classroom and at playtimes. They play a pivotal role in special days and themed weeks, assisting the staff in their planned activities. They also help with school events such as Harvest Festival, Christmas, coffee mornings and fundraising activities.

Each year we have three House Captains and three Vice House Captains. They lead our Houses Pegasus, Gryphon and Phoenix.  This year they are:
