House System

house 01

The Prep School is divided into four Houses; Badgers, Buzzards, Otters and Stags. This gives us a structure within which we can organise many extra-curricular activities for the members of the school. The House system encourages interaction and support between the age groups and promotes the idea that being part of a team is very important and that every member of the team has something worthwhile to contribute. Although most competitions will produce ‘winners’ of whom we are justly proud, the points system is such that, for most events, every child’s achievement counts towards the overall winning position.

The Houses compete in the following events:

 
Handwriting
Poetry
Football
Netball
The Swimming Gala
General Knowledge Quiz
Rounders
Cricket
Hockey
Rugby
Art
Photography
Athletics/Sports Day
Cross-Country running
 

My favourite part of the school day is:

“Art because I like to explore all the different topics” – Eleanor, Yr6
“Sport, DT, Art and Maths because we always do fun things” – Mimi Yr5
