Houses

Junior School Houses

Pupils and teachers are assigned to one of four Houses, named Cook, Milton, Palliser and Penn after local historical figures. The houses provide a means of interaction between different classes and year groups in events such as Sports Day and Themed Weeks and are a spur to friendly competition throughout the year.

 

House points are awarded for especially good work or behaviour. The house points are added up each week and a trophy passed to that week’s highest scoring house in achievement's assembly.

Each house has a House Captain and a Deputy House Captain who are selected at the beginning of the academic year.

 

Each house has a mascot bear whose colours reflect the four house colours - Cook (blue), Milton (green), Palliser (red) and Penn (yellow).

In September 2021 the children voted for new houses. The houses changed are:

 

  • Cook house will become Air House and their house colour will be Blue
  • Milton House will become Earth House and their house colour will be Green
  • Palliser  will become Fire House and their house colour will be Red
  • Penn will become Water House and their house colour will be Yellow
