The children in our school are divided into 4 competitive houses. The house names each celebrate a well-known sporting figure and are represented by a colour.
Wheelchair phenomenon David Weir won a total of six gold medals at the 2008 and 2012 Paralympic Games and has won the London Marathon on six occasions. After his performance at London 2012 he was named Paralympic Sportsman of the Year at the SJA British Sports Awards and awarded the Freedom of the city of London.
Steven Redgrave is widely considered to be the greatest rower of all time, winning gold medals at five successive editions of the Olympic Games. The extraordinary tally of Redgrave’s Olympic medals started in Los Angeles in 1984.
Nicola Adams is a British former professional flyweight boxer. She has an undefeated record and held the WBO female flyweight title in 2019. She became the first female boxer to become an Olympic champion after winning gold at London 2012, and the first double Olympic champion following a second gold medal at Rio 2016.
Sir Mohamed Farah is a British distance runner. The most successful British track athlete in modern Olympic Games history, he is the 2012 and 2016 Olympic gold medallist in both the 5000 m and 10,000 m - a far cry from his humble beginnings in Somalia, arriving in London from Mogadishu at the age of 8 and speaking very little English.
Earning House Points
The children can earn house points for their house for producing exemplary class work and homework, demonstrating good attitudes to learning and behaviour and demonstrating our school core values. The children keep an individual record of their house points on their own house point chart. When they complete a chart they are awarded with a badge in celebration assembly. The house point badges are awarded in the order of bronze, silver, gold and platinum!
There is also a collective house reward at the end of each half term. The house with the most points across all year groups wins the ‘House Cup’ and is rewarded by having a non-school uniform day.
The children compete in their house teams at our annual Sports Day. The children take part in the events wearing their house colours making it a very colourful and competitive event.
