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).
