House System

All children belong to one of the four houses which are 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 Frontières. 

Our house system gives children a taste of what it means to be part of a community. It nurtures respectful competition in a safe and encouraging environment. Children enjoy a variety of house activities and are all encouraged to identify their strengths and work on weaker areas. Students quickly form an allegiance to their house and there is a sense of fun and friendly competition at house events.

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

Wren House (Blue) aims 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 £2,000 through cake sales, a cross country run and other events.

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

Nelson House (Yellow) members strive in all things 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.’

STEM Week – Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths at The Roche School

The week commencing 3rd October will be STEM Week at The Roche School, based around the theme of Water. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, so the week will involve many exciting experiments, challenges and construction activities. On  Monday 3rd October, STEM Week will be kicked off by a special whole school assembly centred on the theme of ‘Water’, led by a special guest…Science Man. Throughout the day every class will have a workshop looking at the importance of water, uses of water and water experiments. On Tuesday 4th October we will be holding a whole school ‘Times Tables Challenge’, where every child will compete (with differentiated tables) to gain as many points for their house as possible. Good luck! On Thursday 6th October, The STEM team at school will lead an interactive assembly and award prizes won during the weeks’ challenges.
