House System


IMG_4642 RIMG_4635 RIMG_4645 RIMG_4641 R

Children are placed in a house when they join the school. There are four houses, each named after a historical, local figure:  Turner, Wren, Nelson and Eliot. There are inter-house competitions throughout the school year, and each house works together to fundraise for the school charity Médecins Sans Frontieres. 

Our house system gives children a taste of what being part of a  community means. It nurtures respectful competition in a safe and encouraging  environment. Children enjoy a variety of house activities and each is encouraged to identify its own strengths and work on their weaker areas together. Students quickly form an allegiance to their house and a sense of fun and friendly competition pervades all the house events.

Members of Turner House ( Red House)   aim to be the best they can. The house motto is ‘Together We Strive’ and this pervades everything they do. Turner House members are kind, caring and considerate with a passion and drive for success.

The children and staff of Wren House (Blue House)  aim to work together from Nursery  to Year 6 to fundraise.  Their motto is ” Friendship and Wisdom.” Last year they supported the charity Crisis and raised over £2000, through cake sales, a cross country run and other events.

Eliot House (Green House) aims to allow every student to find their talent and confidence, achieve their best and support each other. Their motto states that ‘Every Day is a New Day’, instilling perseverance and determination to succeed in all areas of school life.

Nelson House ( Yellow House) members strive to be the best they can whether it be academic or sport related. They take pride in their abilities and respect those of others.  The children of Nelson House do exactly what it says on their crest – ‘Dare to Succeed’.

Good luck! On Thursday 6th October, The STEM team at school will lead an interactive assembly and award prizes won during the weeks’ challenges.
