In the Junior School, we operate a house system to encourage good behaviour and a co-operative team spirit. All the teachers and children are in one of four houses – Maple (Blue), Oak (Green), Rowan (Red) and Willow (Yellow). Siblings are in the same house. A variety of competitions take place during the school year through which children are given the opportunity to earn merits for their house, with the winning house presented with the House Cup at the end of the year. House competitions include our annual sports afternoon, when all children have the chance to participate in a range of sports-related activities, cheered on by their peers, staff and parents.
