Our house system gives children a taste of what it means to be part of a community and play to their strengths.
All pupils belong to one of the four houses which are named after a historical, local figure: Turner, Wren, Nelson and Eliot. They quickly form an allegiance to their house and the system nurtures fun and friendly competition at house events, as the children work together to fundraise for the school charity Médecins Sans Frontières.
Turner House (Red): be the best you 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): work together to support great causes. 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): find your talent and confidence and support one other. Their motto, ‘Every Day is a New Day,’ instils perseverance and determination to succeed in all areas of school life.
Nelson House (Yellow): 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.'
