School House Teams

 

The school is organised into four houses using the four streets surrounding the school which were named to acknowledge the history of the area. House activities include house points which are collected each week for the House Cup, house athletic sports which are conducted in Education Week each year and other lunchtime competitions set up by our house leaders.

Belonging to and working together in teams (houses) helps to build cohesion, school and team spirit, self esteem and encourage responsibility. The Jarman Shield is presented each year to the house with the greatest aggregate score.
